Yesterday morning at 12:01 am, Governor Kathy Hochul was sworn in as the new and first-ever women New York State Governor. ​​ Just hours after officially becoming the governor of New York State, Hochul outlined several priorities, such as COVID-19 and ethics. COVID was a large part of her inaugural address, with schools about to start, Hochul said she is working on mandating COVID vaccines with a testing option for school employees. Hochul also wants universal masking in schools and announced a back-to-school testing program, the details of which will be disclosed “soon.”


Governor Hochul also addressed overall government policies on ethics and sexual harassment. Hochul will soon be signing an executive order that will require every state employee to undergo ethics training, which until now, has not been required for all employees. This part of the address alluded to the sexual harassment scandal that led to the resignation of now-former Gov. Andrew Cuomo with Hochul stating; “It’s our time to unleash the power of New York women.”
