NYC vaccine mandate will hurt recovery: Business leader
Partnership for New York City President and CEO Kathryn Wylde says the private sector COVID vaccine mandate will prevent people’s return to work and limit consumer traffic.
One New York City business leader is speaking out against Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new COVID-19 vaccine mandate for the private sector, warning it will set back economic recovery.
Partnership for New York City president and CEO Kathryn Wylde said many businesses are disappointed with the policy move on "Mornings with Maria" Wednesday, claiming it could prevent people from returning to work and limit consumer traffic.
"Businesses have been working hard in New York to get their folks vaccinated," Wylde told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo. "This is really a solution in search of the problem."

The new mandate would require vaccination for all workers in the private sector with no weekly testing option. The mandate takes effect on Dec. 27 and will apply to around 184,000 businesses.
Proof of vaccination for indoor dining, fitness and entertainment will also be required for children ages 5-11.
