Covid-19 live updates: New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announces vaccine mandate for city workers – The Washington Post

The mandate is expected to apply to some 160,500 workers, according to the statement, including employees of the New York police, fire and sanitation departments. The city says 71 percent have already received at least one dose, meaning 46,545 are still yet to be vaccinated. Civilian employees of the Department of Correction and uniformed members assigned to healthcare settings are also immediately subject to the mandate, while other uniformed members at the department will be subject to mandate effective December 1.
