In a recent turn of events, Mayor Eric Adams of New York City has terminated a city lawyer who, while on maternity leave, questioned the mayor’s decision to enforce mask-wearing for children under the age of five, Your Content has learned.

The lawyer, Daniela Jampel, took on the role of a reporter during a press conference that aimed to address Florida’s controversial “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Jampel, who had been employed at NYC’s Law Department since 2016, was dismissed following the incident.

During the press conference, Jampel managed to enter unnoticed and proceeded to confront Mayor Adams, pressing him for an explanation regarding the ongoing requirement for young children to wear masks.

Despite the mayor’s staff attempting to intervene, Adams urged them to allow Jampel to complete her question. In response, he cited the recent increase in daily COVID-19 cases—from approximately 1,600 a month ago to the current 3,600—as the reason for the postponement in lifting the mandate.

Last month, Adams had announced his intention to rescind the mask mandate for children under the age of five, starting April 4.

However, on April 1, he declared a delay in the implementation. It is worth noting that children under the age of five are not eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations.

Furthermore, the total number of COVID-related deaths among this age group in the United States over the past two years stands at just 363.

Following her dismissal, Daniela Jampel responded by invoking the words of the famous French song, “Je ne regrette rien,” emphasizing her determination to persist in her fight against the mask mandate.

She vowed to continue advocating for her cause, asserting that the battle was far from over, according to The New York Post.
