As expected New York governor Kathy Hochul allows N.Y.’s indoor mask mandate for business to expire Thursday.

While allowing the mask mandate for business to expire, Hochul has decided to extend further the school mask mandate.

Hochul said there is a need to extend the school mask mandate since the fight against COVID 19 will continue.

Based on Hochul’s latest order, masks will still be required in schools, state-regulated health care facilities, nursing homes, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, jails, and on transit systems.

She said her decision to extend the school mask mandate is done through consultation with important members of the state of New York.

The governor said she had consulted with business and hospital leaders, educators, parents, and experts, referencing conversations with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s top COVID adviser.

“Everybody I could think of has received a phone call from me,” Hochul said.
