New York Governor Kathy Hochul will lift her statewide indoor mask mandate on Wednesday, the New York Times reported.
Hochul will make the announcement on Wednesday as other Democrat-run states make the same changes.
It is unclear if Hochul will lift the mandate for schools.
Just two weeks ago Kathy Hochul waged war with an appellate judge who overturned her mask mandate.
A New York State Supreme Court judge two weeks ago ruled Governor Kathy Hochul’s mask mandate “unconstitutional” and declared it null and void.
The judge, who is out of Nassau County, said Hochul had no authority to enact the mask mandate without the state legislature because she no longer has emergency powers.
Hochul immediately filed an appeal and a New York Appellate Judge granted an emergency stay pending appeal.
