New York Gov. Hochul Orders Statewide Vax-Or-Mask Rule Threatening $1K Fines For Businesses

New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Friday ordered all offices, restaurants, shops, and other businesses statewide to make staff and customers either show proof of taking a COVID-19 inoculation or force them to wear masks — otherwise, she says they will face a $1,000 fine per violation.

The new mandate on businesses — many of which are small practices barely surviving financially from repeated assaults by the government on their ability to engage in free enterprise — will take effect Monday and applies statewide.

Businesses that decide to not act as COVID-19 inoculation and muzzle police reportedly could be subject to both civil and even criminal penalties, including a maximum fine of $1,000 for each violation.

The draconian rule will remain in force until at least January 15th. Governor Hochul will then decide if she wants to further extend it, officials said. Hochul’s office said local health departments will be in charge of enforcement.

“I speak all over the state and they’re asking for help. They’ve done everything they can, I applaud our local governments, our county executives, our county administrators and the local public health departments for doing what they can do,” Hochul told reporters after an unrelated event in Manhattan on Friday. “I said I’ll give them air cover, I will give them the protection.”

The newly appointed and unelected New York state governor then went on to falsely suggest that the pandemic has continued solely because of those who have refused the Covid-19 jab.

“This was completely avoidable — [a] completely avoidable circumstance,” the governor continued. “This is a crisis of the unvaccinated.”

This is of course a lie, with reporting from MSN and the CDC also directly contradicting Hochul’s dishonest and divisive rhetoric, claiming that the majority of cases caused by the new Covid-19 “Omicron” variant have occurred in those with full inoculations.

Masks are still forced on city subways, buses, and the MTA’s commuter railroads throughout the state.

Some businesses have gone even further, including Broadway League, a show that requires that theater-goers display proof of Covid-19 inoculation and wear a face mask in order to gain entrance to shows.

Remember everyone, it’s just ‘fifteen days to slow the spread!’
