Hochul announced in December that masks will be required in all indoor public places in the state unless the businesses implement a vaccine requirement. The move came shortly after the emergence of the omicron variant.

The mandate was dropped for those who were vaccinated in June 2021. 狐 5 NY reported that Hochul said her mandate would be in effect for at least a month. それから今月初め, the Health Department said the mandate would be in place until Feb 1.

Isabella said the reason she did not wear a mask was that the law was unconstitutional.

All that I’m trying to do is abide by the law. I don’t want to follow something that is unconstitutional. If it is constitutional now, I will listen to it.
