NY Governor Signs Order Aimed at Preventing Shortage of Healthcare Workers

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed an executive order to address potential healthcare staffing shortages as a result of her vaccine mandate for healthcare workers.

“The only way we can move past this pandemic is to ensure that everyone eligible is vaccinated, and that includes those who are taking care of our vulnerable family members and loved ones,” the Democrat governor said in a Monday statement on her website.

“On Saturday I released a comprehensive plan in advance of the deadline for the vaccine mandate that keeps New Yorkers safe, and tonight I am adding even more provisions to take bold action to alleviate potential staffing shortages. To monitor developments on the ground, I am also directing an around-the-clock operations center to assist local partners and troubleshoot staffing issues in real time.”
