NYC business owner slams 'ridiculous' vaccine requirement for patrons: 'Doing more harm than good'

Generoso, who is the manager of Pasticceria Rocco in Brooklyn, said the possibility of another mandate is “absolutely, absolutely ridiculous.”

“It’s infringing on our liberties,” she told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade.

COVID VACCINE MANDATES IN US: WHERE DO THEY STAND NOW? 

“The mayor is asking store owners, business owners, restaurant owners to start policing people as they come into a restaurant to sit down.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio hasn’t confirmed a mandate for the COVID booster shots, but he said in an interview Friday that the current regulations will be updated as needed to address the newly emerging variant.

“We’re dealing with some new challenges at this moment,” de Blasio said on the Brian Lehrer Show. “So we’re going to keep updating policies regularly to meet this challenge.” 

Generoso, however, said it is not her responsibility to be the “vaccination police.”

She displayed a sign in her storefront window that welcomes all patrons regardless of vaccination status.

“It’s really about protecting civil liberties,” she said. “Somebody should be able to come in – vaccinated or not – sit down, have a cup of coffee, enjoy time with their family.”
