New York will require state employees to present verification of vaccination or to submit themselves for weekly testing, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.

In a Twitter statement, Cuomo said the directive will take effect by Labor Day and that his administration plans to collaborate with state unions to implement the program. Some unions, such as the American Federation of Teachers, and organized labor leaders have voiced their opposition to or outright rejected compulsory vaccine protocols, concerned that they could alienate their membership, Politico reported. Some have proposed state governments attempt better communication, persuasion, and incentives rather than coercion.

Cuomo added that patient-facing front-line healthcare workers, such as physicians and nurses, at state hospitals must be vaccinated with no exceptions or option for regular testing.
