State workers had been scheduled to return to offices this past Tuesday, September 7, and the vaccinate-or-test mandate was to go into effect for about 130,000 workers this week. But Governor Kathy Hochul’s office of employee relations quietly outlined the changes in a memo sent last Friday, September 3.

The memo also broadens mask mandates for vaccinated workers.
