(TheRedAlertNews.com) Happening Now: A federal judge has blocked New York City schools from continuing its plan for a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on public school teachers and other employees in the New York City school system.
The appeals court judge granted a temporary injunction and has transferred the dispute to a panel of judges asking that they expedite their review of the case.
A temporary injunction means that the New York City public school system must stop its plan to require that teachers and other school workers be vaccinated, at least until the next panel of judges review the facts and law and render a decision.
The Department of Education, which favors the vaccine mandate, also wants the case to proceed as quickly as possible.
Department spokeswoman Danielle Filson stated, “We’re confident our vaccine mandate will continue to be upheld once all the facts have been presented because that is the level of protection our students and staff deserve.”
This is a breaking news report, and Red Alert News will bring you updates as circumstances warrant.
