New York City has banned the Unvaccinated from museums and other cultural institutions
New York City will require museum visitors and staff to be vaccinated, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday. The requirement is a part of the city’s expanded “Key To NYC” plan to combat the Delta variant.
“We have one mission now on our pathway to recovery, defeat Delta,” de Blasio said Monday at a press conference. “It can be done through vaccination. The whole key is vaccination. We keep learning this over and over. We’re seeing problems in other parts of the country where folks have not gotten vaccinated, but New Yorkers continue to come out in strong numbers to get vaccinated, and that’s going to make all the difference. So, we have a real challenge here, but we know what we can do to fight back.”
The order goes into effect today.
