New York Governor Andrew Cuomo asked businesses to only admit vaccinated people during a press conference Monday. His hope is that more New Yorkers will receive the COVID-19 vaccine as a result.

“Private businesses I am asking them, and suggesting to them, go to ‘vaccine only’ admission,” Cuomo said.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 75.4% of adult New Yorkers have received at least one vaccine dose and 68.6% received both already. Cuomo tweeted that 40,880 doses were administered over past 24 hours on Sunday. Overall, New York administered 22,295,684 doses to date.

During the presser, Cuomo also announced that all metro employees and New York employees of the Port Authority will be required to either be vaccinated or get tested weekly beginning on Labor Day. “Amid the growing threat of the Delta variant, this precaution will help ensure the health & safety of these dedicated workforces,” Cuomo tweeted.

Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has mandated that all teachers in the city must be vaccinated before school starts this fall. His city alone has already ministered more than 10 million vaccines. “We’re doing everything we can to ensure every eligible New Yorker gets vaccinated,” de Blasio tweeted.

VIDEO: Thousands of packages looted as thieves rob L.A. bound trains

The lawlessness of California continues to manifest itself in very visible ways. Videos are emerging on social media showing huge amounts of trash, and in particular, UPS boxes and amazon packages that were en route to residential addresses.

The trash is piling up jut next to the train tracks, where CBS Los Angeles reports train burglaries are on the rise. “There’s loot3ed packages as far as the eye can see. Amazon packages, @UPS boxes, unused Covid tests, fishing lures, epi pens. Cargo containers left busted open on trains” tweeted John Schreiber.

Schreiber added, “I’m told by law enforcement these @UPS bags are especially sought after by thieves opening cargo containers…they are often full of boxes with merchandise bound for residential addresses. More valuable than say, a cargo container full of low value bulky items like toilet paper.”

Schreiber’s multiple videos posted to Twitter show the absolute disgust resulting from the thievery. “As you can see, trains frequently slow or stop in this area as they get worked into the @UnionPacific Intermodal facility near Downtown LA. The thieves use this opportunity to break open containers and take what’s inside, I’d say every 4th or 5th rail car had opened containers.

In another tweet with more photos of damaged property, Schreiber writes, “missing a package? Shipment delayed? Maybe your package is among the thousands we found discarded among the tracks. This is but one area thieves have targeted trains. We were told this area was just cleaned up 30 days ago so what you see is all within the last month. @CBSLA.”
