Mayor Eric Adams is blasting anti-mask activists and wants to remind people that COVID isn’t over.
There was a protest earlier this week against the mask mandate for kids ages 2-4.
On Wednesday, the mayor said he did not know the now-fired city Law Department employee who attended one of those rallies before posing as a reporter at a press conference.
He also said he did not make the decision to fire Daniela Jampel, the Law Department did.
He also had this message for people upset about mask-wearing.
“There’s a group that’s traveling around the city, banging on the doors of my health commissioner, even though his children are inside, yelling and screaming, threatening his life,” Adams said. “There’s a group that’s running around the city who is the numerical minority, but they are loud, so people believe that they are the majority.”
Meanwhile, at the state level, more than 100 court employees are set to get fired after failing to submit proof of vaccination on Thursday.
At least one judge on the New York State Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, is facing removal from the bench because she won’t get vaccinated.
According to multiple reports, the judge is Jenny Rivera who repeatedly shows up to proceeding via video while everyone else appears in person.
