The office told the New York Times that of those, 914 worked for the Department of Education and 101 for the city’s Housing Authority. The terminations came despite several other U.S. cities moving to reduce COVID-19 regulations.

At a Thursday news conference, Adams said, “I want them to stay, I want them to be employees of the city, but they have to follow the rules.”

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
