Governor Andrew Cuomo claims NY is ‘not ready’ to follow federal advice on going maskless

Despite the CDC’s recent provision of the pandemic protocol, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said that New York will not revoke its implemented mask-mandates. 

Governor Cuomo, when asked about whether or not New York would be following the recommendations of the CDC, responded “In New York, we have always relied on the facts and the science to guide us throughout the worst of this pandemic and in our successful reopening.” Cuomo later expanded, saying “We have received the newly revised guidance from the CDC regarding mask wearing and social distancing for those with vaccinations and are reviewing them in consultation with Dr. Zucker and our partners and health experts in surrounding states.”

Governor Cuomo did not revise his implemented mask policy that requires masks regardless of vaccination status. Cuomo has been seen in a controversial light regarding his handling of COVID-19 and his involvement in the deaths of elderly New Yorkers.
