NY to extend mask-or-vaccinate mandate to Feb. 10

During a press conference on Long Island on Friday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the state's mask mandate, requiring masks in public buildings unless such buildings require COVID-19 vaccination for entry, will be extended until mid-February.

The mandate, which was first announced on December 10, has been a "critical tool" in lowering COVID-19 numbers, according to the Democratic governor.

"We’ll be extending that just through February 10," Hochul said. "Probably a couple days before then we’ll be evaluating. But if we continue on this rapid trend downward we’ll be in a good place."
