Mayor Bill de Blasio says health care and hospital workers in New York City will be required to get the vaccine, or they’ll be tested for coronavirus weekly.
“This is about keeping people safe and stopping the Delta variant,” Mayor de Blasio said.
The Delta variant has caused the positivity rate in the city and much of the country to spike. The order will take effect on August 2nd.
“If we want to beat COVID once and for all, we have to stop the Delta variant,” Mayor de Blasio said.
