“It's smart, it's fair and it's in everyone's interest,” Cuomo said in a Wednesday Zoom call with the nonprofit Association for a Better New York.
In mandating either the shots, or frequent testing for government workers, Cuomo is following on the heels of California and New York City, which announced similar policies for employees earlier this week.
New York, like other states, has seen a rising number of coronavirus cases linked to the Delta variant. New infections have climbed more than 400 per cent since the end of June.
