NY Health Commissioner repeals mask mandate for unvaxxed after federal lawsuit filed

As stated by their headline, right wing antivaxxers are celebrating and taking credit for a repeal of the New York State mask mandate that never happened.

In actuality the June 16, 2021 regulation, which included an exception for vaccinated persons from the NY mask mandate, was repealed and replaced on August 27.

The replacement regulation continues the mask mandate.

1. Well, has the media managed to report this accurately or is this part of the problem...?

After the abysmal reporting on Afghanistan, I never take it for granted that the problem may not be with MSM (and obviously propaganda from RW media).

2. So your OP headline is repeating a lie?

Not cool.

3. If my reasoning is unclear I will try to do better.

4. The headline itself is misleading, regardless of whether it's right-wing.

You are not required to exactly duplicate a headline in Editorials & Other Articles; only in Late Breaking News (but of course, mere mortals can't post in LBN anyway).
