As worries about the increasing Delta variant grow, New York City and the state of California announced Monday that government workers will have to get vaccinated or submit to weekly tests for the coronavirus.
Teachers in New York City will need to follow the same requirements beginning in September.
But Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not announcing similar plans for New York state workers, and hinted that New York City’s order might not even be legal.
“The state would have to legislate to say New York City employees ... would have to be vaccinated,” Cuomo said.
