Kyrie can get back on the court.
According to The New York Post, NYC Mayor Eric Adams has exempted the city’s athletes and performers from COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Adams’ decision follows “weeks of pressure after it kept Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving from playing in home games — and was expected to block some baseball players from taking the field next month.”
Adams has signed the order and its effective immediately.
“Being healthy is not just about being physically healthy, but being economically healthy,” he said.
“I’m going to make some tough choices. People are not going to agree with some of them. I must move this city forward,” Adams said.
“Generals lead from the front. I was not elected to be fearful, but to be fearless.”
“This is about putting New York City-based based performers on a level playing field,” he said. “Hometown players had an unfair disadvantage.”
