NYS Supreme Court judge strikes down mask mandate | Beaufort County Now | Unconstitutional

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

A State Supreme Court judge in Nassau County ruled Gov. Kathy Hochul’s mask mandate was unconstitutional.

Gov. Kathy Hochul said in August that all students and staff would need to wear masks in schools. Then in December, she announced a mask requirement for all indoor businesses and venues unless they already require proof of vaccination to enter. Hochul on Monday said she would challenge Judge Thomas Rademaker’s mask ruling.


How long before another judge comes along and over turns this ruling?
