Hochul Extends State Mask Mandate to Feb 1

Governor Hochul has extended New York State’s mask mandate for all businesses and venues to February 1. As we had previously reported, the mask mandate went back in effect on December 13 and was scheduled to expire on January 15, 2022. Businesses or venues that require proof of vaccination to enter are exempt from the mandate. As a reminder, the mandate applies to healthcare providers, irrespective of employee vaccination status.
