New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D), who was replaced disgraced ex-governor Andrew Cuomo, announced a mask mandate for kids in daycare and other places Wednesday.

“Face coverings for kids age 2+, all staff & visitors, are now required at @NYSOCFS-lisenced/registered child care centers, home-based group family & family child care programs, after-school child care programs, and enrolled legally exempt group programs during operations hours,” Hochul tweeted.

The Buffalo News reported that Hochul said her executive actions related to COVID are “the smart thing to do and we have to continue the mandates,” adding “This is not intended to be dictatorial; this is intended to save lives.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is running for governor in 2022, slammed Hochul for the mandate on two-year-old children.

“New governor, same absurd, unscientific, power-hungry mandates,” Zeldin tweeted.
