  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New York Lifts Covid Restrictions After 70% of Residents Vaccinated: Cuomo” – below is their description.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo lifted the state’s pandemic mandates, saying that 70% of the state’s adult population has now had at least one dose of a vaccine.

    “All across the board we can get back to living,” Cuomo said in a briefing. “The state mandates are gone.”

    The last protocols that were in place included social distancing requirements, capacity restrictions, health screening and collecting contact information for tracing. Early in the pandemic, New York City had the most coronavirus cases in the world, as well as some of the strongest lockdown restrictions.

    Cuomo said last week restrictions would be removed once the state hit the vaccination benchmark. Businesses in the state can opt to continue Covid-19 precautions but are not required to by law.
