    New York will lift its mask mandate on Wednesday for fully vaccinated people as Covid vaccinations approach 50% of the state’s residents and cases and hospitalizations ebb.

    “All the arrows are pointed in the right direction, so let’s get back to life,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo in a briefing on Monday. “We need to get the exuberance back, the excitement back.”

    Cuomo called the easing of the mask mandate a “radical adjustment of rules and guidelines” and said the state took a couple of days to analyze the guidance and align it with its own. Masks will still be required at schools, public transit, correctional facilities and health-care settings.
