A judge had considered the state ordinance illegal to use masks inside public premises, which was issued by Governor Kathy Hochul when they began to increase the cases of omicron, and which was valid for one month, although the Department of Healthextended it until February 1.
The Judge of the Supreme Court of the State, Thomas Rademaker, who declared illegal the mandatory mask, said that such an order is the power of the Legislative Power (in this case of the State of New York) because the governor no longer has the powersthat were granted to the Executive during the pandemic.
