ALBANY – New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for new “dramatic action” to control the spread COVID-19 statewide.
Cuomo, speaking on Wednesday, announced the state will soon mandate all government and hospital workers to be vaccinated against the virus.
State-run hospitals and facilities include:
SUNY Stony Brook
- SUNY Upstate
- SUNY Downstate
- Long Island Veterans Home at Stony Brook
- Helen Hayes Hospital
- SUNY College of Optometry
- Montrose Veterans Home
- St. Albans Veterans Home
- Oxford Veterans Home
- Batavia Veterans Home
He hopes to begin the requirement on September 1, in reaction to COVID-19 Delta Variant concerns.
“We are working with the state unions to implement this program quickly and fairly,” said Cuomo.
He is also asking local governments, counties, cities and towns, to do the same.
President Joe Biden is also working to mandate the vaccine for federal employees as well.
The Governor also called on the FDA to expedite final approval of the vaccine and end emergency use authorization restrictions. Governor Cuomo also urged local governments to require all employees to be vaccinated or submit to testing by Labor Day. If the numbers continue to increase, school districts in affected areas should also strongly consider taking further action.
As for schools, Cuomo says if COVID-19 activity continues to rise around the state, districts in “effected areas should strongly consider taking more aggressive actions so that schools don’t become superspreaders in September.”
So let me get this straight… Under the current Covid-19 guidelines this story is true
A FULLY vaccinated person with a Covid-19 test flying from Europe would NOT be allowed to visit this country due to C-19 protocols….
A NON-vaccinated person, NON-tested person who walks across the southern border is allowed in, & maybe given a hotel rooom at taxpayers expense. Then they have the possibility of being shipped elsewhere inside the country with NO contact tracing…..
And now vaccinated people have to wear masks again, I thought if we got vaccinated we didn’t have to wear masks ? “In rare occasions, some vaccinated people infected with a delta variant after vaccination may be contagious and spread the virus to others,” Walensky said during a press briefing on Tuesday. “This new science is worrisome, and unfortunately warrants an update to our recommendation.”
Walensky claimed that “new information” gathered last week shows that those infected with the delta variant could carry the same viral load as unvaccinated, infected people, according to a report from ABC News.
In the “science” world , do you know where “delta” is….???? Delta waves are the slowest recorded brain waves in human beings.
