Mayor Eric Adams is expected to announce the end of school mask mandates and immunization records across New York City Friday morning.
Hizzoner has a 10:30 a.m. press conference in Times Square where he expects to open restaurants, theaters and other entertainment venues to end vaccinations for customers.
The abolition of compulsory vaccination and strict school mask rules are expected to come into force from Monday.
The changes mean guests at Big Apple restaurants, gyms, and indoor venues — including theaters — will no longer need to show proof of vaccination to enter.
adams had teased his plans to eliminate local COVID-19 Mandates earlier this week barring “unforeseen spikes” in new cases.
The number of new infections, hospital admissions and deaths is still falling, the city’s latest health data shows. New York City recorded an average of 541 new COVID-19 cases over the past seven days, down from more than 2,000 per day just a month ago.
The changes come after Gov. Kathy Hochul last month dropped New York’s statewide mask mandate for most indoor spaces and schools from this past Wednesday under new CDC guidelines.
Some pandemic restrictions will remain in the five districts for the time being — including a mandate that public officials must be vaccinated.
Mask rules are expected to continue to be enforced on public transport, as well as in care homes, correctional facilities and homeless shelters. Face coverings are also still required in healthcare.
