NYC vaccine mandate exemption denied

A federal judge in the Southern District of New York denied a motion from New York City public school employees against COVID-19 mandates on the basis of religious exemption.

District Judge Valerie Caproni ruled against the motion that sought to stop the vaccine mandate for school employees because it does not allow religious exemption option.

Caproni wrote the plantiffs “have not shown irreparable harm or a likelihood of success on the merits, their motion for a preliminary injunction is denied.”

New York City Continues Vaccine Extremes

In addition to the court ruling in favor of vaccine mandates for school employees despite not allowing a religious exemption, the city has continued to add new mandates.

Mayor de Blasio recently announced the most extreme mandates in the nation, including that children five years old and above will need proof of vaccination to enter restaurants.

Now children as early as kindergarten will need papers to enter McDonalds, an extreme most people thought would never happen in America.

The Response

New Yorkers have not taken well to the new mandate regulations. A group of protesters even gathered outside of de Blasio’s home after the recent announcement.

At the other extreme, Gov. Kathy Hochul added a statewide indoor mask mandate following the city’s expansion, blaming de Blasio for the change.

The city has not taken well to the new moves, with many looking forward to a new mayor beginning new year, hoping Eric Adams will do something to change the situation.
