Health care workers in New York will still be able to seek religious exemptions from the state's vaccine mandate while a lawsuit challenging the requirement continues making its way through court.

That's the ruling from a federal judge Tuesday. In response, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said she's responsible to protect the people of the state, and requiring health care workers to get vaccinated accomplishes that.
