New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to announce on Monday that all municipal workers will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or get tested weekly, according to NBC New York, which cited unnamed people familiar with the plan.

The vaccine mandate is the first expansion of a policy announced last week that requires healthcare workers in public hospitals and clinics to be vaccinated by Aug. 2 or submit to weekly tests.

About 60% of the city’s more than 42,000 public hospital employees have been vaccinated, according to Mitchell Katz, president and chief executive officer of the system.

Only 54% of people are fully vaccinated in the city, which missed its goal of fully vaccinating 5 million New Yorkers by the end of June. Just over 4.5 million New Yorkers are fully vaccinated.
