Mayor Bill de Blasio said the new plan will go into effect August 16.
Sebastian MurdockNew York City will start requiring proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for all indoor activities including restaurants and gyms, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.“If you want to participate in our society fully, it’s time to get vaccinated,” de Blasio said during a press conference.
The program, which will launch on August 16 and become more strictly enforced starting Sept. 13, is the latest effort to get New Yorkers vaccinated as the dangerous delta variant of the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the U.S. So far, about 66% of adults are fully vaccinated in the city.
