Vax or Mask Mandate Requirements Lifted, but not for Home Care

Effective Thursday, February 10, 2022, Governor Hochul lifted the “vaccinate or mask up” mandate for the majority of New York businesses. However, healthcare settings are excluded from this waiver and must continue to require their staff to mask up, regardless of vaccination status. Home care offices (and, of course, the home setting) are considered healthcare settings. If providers have any questions about these requirements, please let us know.
