Governor Kathy Hochul says employers should bring their workers back to the office after New Year’s.
“It is safe to come back. Send that message out to your employees, come back to work, we miss you,” Governor Hochul said.
Many workers continue to work remotely even after getting vaccinated. Hochul said that’s hurting small businesses in the city.
“We know the effects on the small subsidiary businesses, the little mom and pop shops, the retail, the place that people stop for coffee and for lunch, all those little businesses are also hurting until people come back downtown,” Hochul said.
She said the New Year’s resolution should be “everybody back in the office.”
