New York threatened Orthodox Jewish neighbourhoods with strict virus measures
NEW YORK, 26 Sept. - (ANA) - New York Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered the Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office to enforce public health guidelines in several Orthodox Jewish neighbourhoods, where residents often do not wear masks or engage in social distancing.
But community leaders said residents have been resisting the guidelines because of hostility toward Mr. de Blasio and the growing influence of President Trump, whose views on masks and the pandemic have been widely embraced. - (ANA) -
