Court grants governor full stay on masks

New York’s Appellate court on January 31 granted a full stay to Governor Kathy Hochul’s mask mandate for all public indoor spaces for the remainder of the appeals process currently underway.

A state Supreme Court judge first struck down the mandate as unconstitutional on January 24, a second court overturned that decision on the Governor’s appeal. The January 31 Appellate court ruling keeps the mandate alive through the next court date in the appeal – March 2, 2022.

The governor last week also extended her mandate until February 10, promising to revisit her decision biweekly. That means, technically, the mandate could come down before March 2.

She first announced the “winter surge” requirement on December 10 with an executive order mandating masks to be worn in all indoor public places unless businesses or venues implement a proof-of-vaccination requirement for anyone 12 years of age or older.

    Nobody cares about what that substitute tyrant thinks even people that are liberally minded are getting tired of this mask BS and nobody cares except for a select few that have been scared into thinking that a mask is going to save their lives. The omicron variant is very mild and is no more lethal than the common cold no matter what they tried to tell you with their scare tactics. People need to stand up for their freedoms and not lay down to these people that don’t even follow their own rules as we have witnessed many times with substitute Governor hochul not wearing masks inside of public schools yet expecting all of the poor children and teaching staff to wear them. I think New York is about sick of this do what I say not as I do attitude! FREEDOM OVER FEAR!
