Schools in New York City were temporarily barred from enforcing a vaccination warrant for its teachers and other workers by a federal appeals judge just days before it went into effect.

Workers in the country’s largest school system were to be required to show proof of vaccination from Monday. But on Friday night, a judge in the U.S. 2nd Court of Appeals granted a temporary injunction sought by a group of teachers and referred the case to a panel of three judges on an expedited basis.
