The new policy goes into effect December 13th. Masks will be required to be worn in all indoor public places unless businesses or venues implement a COVID vaccine requirement. The state says it will reevaluate the policy January 15th. 

This news comes at a time when there’s a surge in coronavirus cases and an uptick in COVID-related hospitalizations in the state.  Hochul says the new measure brings added layers of mitigation during the holidays when more time is spent indoors.
