LOUDONVILLE, NY – A majority of New Yorkers would like to wait for more data before lifting the school mask mandate in the Empire State.

That’s according to a poll released Tuesday by the Siena College Research Institute.

Data collected shows that 58 percent of New Yorkers want to wait until early March, using data to decide whether to lift the school mask mandate compared to 30 percent who say the school mask mandate should have ended already.

Meanwhile, another ten percent want to see it end after this week’s winter break.

As for New York’s indoor public mask mandate, which was lifted last week, 45 percent believe the mandate should still be in place, compared to 31 percent who say it should have ended earlier than it did with 20 percent of those polled feeling it ended at the right time.
