Meet the new mandates, same as the old mandates

 

 Eyewitness News

 Mayor-elect Eric Adams held COVID news conference unveiling his plans to combat COVID in New York City as he prepares to take office this weekend.

He was joined by current Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi and incoming Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan.

Adams said the plan is to, "Keep our city open. That's the goal. We can't shut down our city again."

As for existing mandates regarding vaccines and masks, they will stay in place with a few changes and adjustments.

The private-sector employee vaccine mandate will stay in place with a focus on compliance, not punishment. A dedicated unit will work with small businesses, stakeholders, and the mayor's corporate engagement committee to help implement the mandate, foregoing fines if employers engage with the city to help get their workers vaccinated.

The city will study the need for an "up to date" mandate program to require booster shots for all New Yorkers currently covered by the vaccine mandates and engage with unions, the business community, and other shareholders. The data shows that booster shots are extremely effective against Delta and earlier COVID strains, but the city says it does not yet have definitive data on omicron.

The city will set a deadline of this spring for a decision on whether or not there should be a vaccine mandate in schools for the fall of 2022. The decision will be based on expected COVID risk in city schools and vaccination rates among students.

All other current mandates stay in place, including for masks.

"We are going to get through this," Adams said. "New York will lead the way for this entire country to follow."

As for New York City Schools, they will fully reopen on January 3, and they will implement the Stay Safe, Stay Open plan.

It includes doubling surveillance testing and adjusting the Situation Room and quarantine protocols. Sending home millions of rapid at-home tests for students and educators.
They will also strengthen mitigation measures including higher quality masks and better ventilation.

 Incoming-Mayor Adams says they will surge resources to the Health + Hospitals system to ensure enough capacity to address new hospitalizations from omicron. Ambulatory care will be shifted to virtual when possible to shore up nurse staffing levels and other measures.

He also plans to improve safety in congregate settings like jails, shelters, and nursing homes at high risk by supporting rapid isolation and quarantine. They will also provide ready access to vaccination and testing.

As far as COVID testing efforts for the city, the Adams administration plans to increase testing with more sites and mass-access to rapid tests.

The city says it will provide clear testing protocols for specific settings, including in the private sector.


The city will also surge resources to the Health Department, including more than 250 staff, to keep the public health infrastructure strong and at adequate capacity.

Hopefully he will actually enforce the rules. At least have on the spot fines for no masks in indoor public places. Three offenses, and send them to Randall's Island.

Mandate? Isn't that when Barack and Michelle go to the movies?

All that bullshit hasn't worked for almost two years but let's keep on being ridiculous just because.

Don't bother trying to keep NYC open because until sanity shows up by some miracle it should just close down and stay closed.

Il Fauc-o, May 2021: “vaccinated people become dead ends for the virus and cannot spread it”

Hmmm. Oh yeah, he was lying, and he knew it.

The Great Walensky, April 2021: "Our data today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don't get sick, and that it's not just in the clinical trials but it's also in real-world data."

Hmm. Oh yeah, she was lying, and she knew it.

The ghastly Rachel Madcow, March 2021: “Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person… The virus does not infect them… It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to get more people.”

Hmmm. Oh yeah, she was lying, but she's an imbecile, and she probably didn't know it.

There are thousands of other examples. You have been lied to all along about every aspect of Covid, particularly about masks, vaccines and potential treatments that were suppressed so Big Pharma could keep minting new billionaires (about 40 or so to date, cha-ching! Meanwhile, you lost your job, peasant.) The Fauci Prick has killed tens of thousands at a minimum, probably far more than that.

All the mandates are a fa├žade, a scam, a mind-game to get you to comply. We live in a world awash in lies. I'm not expecting too much from Adams and his new Chocolate City administration, but he might be a tiny bit better than Kaiser Bill. Meanwhile, Herr Hochul is just a stupid, batty old woman who should be put out to pasture, long, long past her sell-by date. 2022 is gonna be ggggrrrrreeeeeaaaatttt!!

@"Eric Adams like all NY Democrats is a stooge for the anti-christian American ruling class. "

Not just Eric Adams and the NY Democrats. Everything about the USA has been anti-Christian since its inception. Nothing Christian about stealing land. Wiping out native populations just for a land grab. Nothing Christian about slavery. Nothing Christian about the death penalty. Nothing Christian about gun toting buffoons. Nothing Christian about harsh penal laws. Nothing Christian about using "Christian" holidays as commercial opportunities. Nothing Christian about dropping bombs on civilians around the world. The list could go on ...
When was the USA ever Christian? Never was and never will be.
Check it out in the New Testament if you believe that kind of stuff.

It could be worse. Could be stuck in outer suburbia or some soulless town in Texas, Indiana, Ohio etc. I'd rather Queens than NJ, Florida or anywhere else in the USA except California.

Yep. Make the the Globalist Cult ruling class, really about 1500 assholes, about 1000 corporations and 10000 young Global Shapers.

No wonder they are afraid of (almost) 8 billion people who they the have been fucking over as long as history can go back.

Talk about conspiracy reality.

So why not pack your bag and go there . Don’t bother coming back, even when you get bored with Walmart ,Taco Bell, and Texas two step classes.

Typical commie nonsense. Any complaints talk to the Royal family in England.

NOTHING prevents you from leaving this country and go somewhere better.
Nothing.

To the "anonymous" idiot opining on "anti-christian"
#1. Slavery is acknowledged and indeed sanctioned by the Koran, Torah, and Bible.
#2. EVERY pre-industrial human society had slaves. Deal. It's not a "evil Whitey" thing.
Grow up, numbnuts.
