Attorney General Letitia James Statement on New York City
NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement on today’s announcement that New York City will soon require all private sector employees to get vaccinated:
"I support a vaccine mandate with a testing option, but why are we still doing this piecemeal? A mandate alone won’t get us out of crisis, particularly when it's implemented without input from employees and employers. Science tells us we need everyone to wear masks in public settings; accessible at-home testing; and real public health outreach to our communities. This cannot be done municipality by municipality. New York state must finally lead."
