Mayor Eric Adams signed two executive orders Saturday as he kicked off his new administration.
One order continued the state of emergency put in place by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration to deal with COVID-19, and the other maintained the “Key to the City” order that requires proof of vaccination in designated indoor settings.
“Our focus in the weeks and months ahead will be on beating back the #Omicron surge and putting our city on a path toward an equitable recovery. We’ll work day in and day out to get that done,” Adams tweeted.
He signed the orders in the early afternoon shortly after giving a brief inaugural address from City Hall.
