New York City is no longer requiring proof of vaccination for indoor activities. One of the cities hit hard with COVID-19 cases through this pandemic, New York instated the “Key to NYC”; a vaccine mandate for restaurants, gyms, bars, and anything else inside.
With their high vaccination rate and the COVID-19 numbers decreasing, New York State lifted the indoor business mask-or-vaccine requirement Thursday, February, 10th. The City stayed cautious a little bit longer, with the mayor announcing the mandates lifting for March 7th.
The vaccine mandate lifting means that vaccines are no longer required to attend concerts and shows. While private businesses can still require mandates on their own, it is no longer a city-wide restriction.
Cities and states with stricter COVID-19 mandates are easing up all around. With this news and warmer weather approaching, we’re looking forward with cautious optimism.
