ALBANY — New York’s statewide mask mandate will remain in place for now, after an appeals court judge granted a motion Tuesday to pause a decision made by a lower court that lifted Gov. Kathy Hochul’s edict for businesses.
State Attorney General Letitia James filed the motion on the ruling made Monday by a Long Island judge tossing a Nov. 24 order by Hochul that businesses without mandatory vaccination policies require all workers, customers and guests wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The order was granted by Associate Justice Robert Miller, of the Appellate Division, Second Department.
