Tague Speaks on Hochul’s Announcement Ending Mask Mandate for Businesses

A Statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I-Schoharie)

“Today’s announcement by our governor is no cause for celebration, because it provides no plan whatsoever to end the masking of our children in schools,” said Tague. “Even as other governors have relented and ended their school mask mandates, Hochul has ignored both the data and public sentiment by needlessly prolonging this harmful and entirely unnecessary policy. Two years of masking has had a marked impact on the development and educational success of our children, and it’s long past time to put an end to this mandate once and for all.”
