NYC Councilman Mark Levine wants masks to be required indoors again.

While the Delta variant continues to spread across the country, New York City Councilman Mark Levine is calling for masks to again be required indoors throughout the city. "It's time to renew the indoor mask mandate, including for those who are vax'd," he recently tweeted.

Levine recently won in the primary election to be Manhattan Borough President.

Meanwhile, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combatting COVID-19.

"After over a year of containing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now being told that COVID is now mainly a pandemic among the unvaccinated," Governor Cuomo said. "If you haven't already, I encourage you to get your shot to best protect yourself and your loved ones against the variants spreading through the nation."
