New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced new measures to slow the spread of COVID on Wednesday.
“To help slow the spread of the Delta variant and safely reopen our economy, I am announcing a series of universal mask measures,” Hochul said.
Face coverings for anyone over the age of two, including all staff and visitors, are now mandatory
NYS Office of Children and Family Services, licensed or registered child care centers, home group family care programs, family child care programs, after school child care programs, and group legally exempted during opening hours.
“These universal mask requirements apply to anyone medically able to tolerate wearing a mask, regardless of their immunization status,” Hochul added.
New masking requirements will also apply to aggregation programs and facilities licensed, registered, operated, certified or approved by the NYS Office of Mental Health; NYS OASAS; NYS OPWDD; NYS OCFS; and NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, according to Hochul.
“With Delta on the rise, demanding masks is key to slowing the spread, safely reopening our economy and protecting vulnerable New Yorkers,” Hochul said. “This new mask requirement ensures that children in our daycares receive the same protection as children in our schools. “
