New York Mayor Eric Adams announced on Friday that, as of March 7, the city will be suspending the "Key to NYC" requirements, meaning that the city will drop proof of vaccination documents for indoor venues such as restaurants, bars, gyms, and entertainment venues.
Adams said in his announcement that businesses will be allowed to choose whether they keep proof of vaccination or not. School children will no longer be subjext to mask requirements.
"Two years ago, New York City was the epicenter of the pandemic, but thanks to New Yorkers getting vaccinated and getting boosted in record numbers, the fight may not be over, we’re clearly winning the war. We are open for business and New York City has its groove back," said Adams.
Adams said that schools have remained "among the safest places in the city throughout this pandemic, with record low numbers of infections," and that, starting Monday, March 7, the indoor mask mandate will be removed for K-12 schools.
"Masks will continue to be required for all settings with children under 5 years of age, including programs contracted by the New York City Department of Education with 3- and 4-year-old children as well as 3K and 4K classrooms in district schools," he said.
New York will also move into color-code "Green," meaning that the alert level in New York City for Covid is "Low."
