New York to end mask mandate for most indoor places

New York/UNI/Sputnik/IBNS: The US state of New York will end its mask mandate for most indoor places starting Feb 10, Governor Kathy Hochul said in a statement on Wednesday.

"We are not where we were in early December. New Yorkers did the right thing to get through the winter surge, and we can now lift the statewide mask-or-vaccine requirement for indoor businesses starting tomorrow," Hochul said via Twitter.

She added that counties, cities and businesses can still require people to wear masks.

However, the Governor added that students in schools will continue wearing masks until further assessment.
