"The delta variant continues to make more and more trouble, and we've got to fight back," de Blasio said. "We need a strong, clear approach -- that every single one of our workers gets vaccinated or tested weekly."

The new rules, which will go into effect on Aug. 2, will apply to all employees at city-run hospitals and clinical workers for the health department. The city plans to extend the new rules to additional health department staff in ทดลองเล่นสล็อต coming weeks. Those employees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

The mayor stressed that the new rules are an additional step to keep the city safe and won't take away from grassroots efforts, such as mobile sites and at-home vaccinations, to raise vaccination rates in the general population. The new rule isn't technically a vaccine mandate, since employees have the option to get tested each week.

"Every single one of those employees has a choice," added de Blasio, noting that a vaccination was the better of the two options. "This is about keeping people safe and stopping the delta variant."
