BUFFALO, NY (WGRZ) — Western New York is chiming in on President Biden’s latest effort to curb COVID-19 numbers and control the delta variant.
Dottie Gallagher is the president and CEO of Buffalo Niagara Partnership. She says she strongly believes local businesses and business owners will support Biden’s mandate because they want to stay up and running.
“I know a number of local employers that were considering mandating vaccinations even without a government mandate,” Gallagher says.
Given the unprecedented challenges many industries and businesses have faced during the pandemic, Gallagher believes this new mandate will not only help create a sense of stability and safety moving forward for employers, but will also help establish a level of comfort that will invite employees back into the work space.
