New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced plans to implement the first-in-the-US policy requiring proof of COVID vaccinatiobrn to participate in indoor activities like dining indoors, and going to the gym. The plan is to use compliant businesses as vaccine enforcers. The policy will take full effect when school begins in September.
After the Bay Area and Louisiana each adopted mandatory mask rules, it appears Mayor De Blasio is doubling-down on his vaccine-focused approach, ordering even more restrictive policies. According to the NYT, the mayor will announce that NYC will require proof of vaccination for people participating in a range of indoor activities, from indoor dining to going to the gyms, performances on Broadway, and elsewhere. The city’s adult vaccination rate hovers at 66%.

The announcement read: “Under the policy, guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine in order to attend a show and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket.”
The announcement specified that being fully vaccinated means “the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.””
