Only 0.15% of vaccinated New Yorkers have had a breakthrough infection. The COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective. Get vaccinated today.

#BREAKING : New York State will mandate all state employees either be vaccinated or get tested regularly. We are working with the state unions to implement this program quickly & fairly. Will take effect by Labor Day.

All patient-facing healthcare workers at State hospitals will be required to get vaccinated. Period.

Proud to announce that @cunynewswire  will forgive up to $125M in unpaid debt for at least 50,000 students—one of the largest student debt forgiveness plans of its kind. Students were among those most impacted by COVID. This plan provides much-needed #CUNYComebackrelief .


Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask. Listen up:

The president is calling out the American military against American citizens. He used the military to push out a peaceful protest so he could have a photo op at a church. It's all just a reality TV show for this president. Shameful.

Retweet if you think public health decisions should be based on science, NOT politics.

Health care workers wear masks for 5+ hours non-stop. You can wear one for 45 minutes.

My mother is not expendable. Your mother is not expendable. We will not put a dollar figure on human life. We can have a public health strategy that is consistent with an economic one. No one should be talking about social darwinism for the sake of the stock market.

Wake up America. What’s happening across the country isn’t a second wave. It’s still the first wave.

If a hospital worker can wear a mask nonstop during a 10-hour shift. If women can wear masks during labor. You can wear a mask while running an errand.

Yesterday the US hit a record high for new COVID cases. WEAR A MASK.

You don’t defeat a virus with politics. You defeat a virus with science and medicine.

Today I am signing an Executive Order authorizing businesses to deny entry to those who do not wear masks or face-coverings. No mask - No entry.
