Thousands of New York City workers face suspension as a vaccine deadline arrives.

*

– New York City will start enforcing its Covid vaccine mandate for municipal workers on Monday, and thousands of workers who refused to get vaccinated are expected to be told to stay home.

-But city officials said that they believed they could cope with the reduction in workers without a significant slowdown of city services. With measures such as shuffling firefighters between companies and extending the workday for sanitation workers, city agencies have been taking steps to shore up coverage in the lead up to the mandate.

Unvaccinated municipal employees without a medical or religious exemption — or a pending request for one — will be placed on unpaid leave.

Danielle Filson, press secretary for Mayor Bill de Blasio, said in a statement, “Over 91 percent of New York City workers have stepped up for their communities and gotten the shot.”

===============================================

My 2 cents opinion:
New York City has endured worst. I am sure these people who refuse to vaccinate for the public good will also past into history. La ciudad de Nueva York ha pasado por momentos peores. Estoy seguro que estas personas que rehusan vacunarse por el bien publico tambien pasaran a la historia.
