Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced Friday that the big apple will be ending its mandatory vaccination status for restaurants and businesses starting March 7.
I’m glad to say that the rates are low enough that the mandatory program is no longer needed. No longer needed. Beginning Monday, March 7, we will be suspending the requirements under Key to NYC and so folks can come in and enjoy the restaurants, enjoy the businesses, be a part of this great city without having to show proof of vaccination,” Adams said while speaking in Times Square.
“We’re far from out of the woods,” he added. “COVID is still here. But we are beating it back.”
Businesses may still choose to keep mandates in place but the city will no longer require them to check vaccine status. (RELATED: Navy SEALs Notch Another Win Against Biden Admin Vaccine Mandate After Federal Court Appeals Court Ruling)
