NYC mandates proof of COVID-19 vaccine for indoor activities, New Yorkers react

Global News published this video item, entitled “NYC mandates proof of COVID-19 vaccine for indoor activities, New Yorkers react” – below is their description.

New York City will become the first major U.S. city to require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for customers and staff at restaurants, gyms and other indoor businesses as the country enters a new phase of battling the highly-contagious Delta variant.

The announcement is the latest in a string of initiatives aimed at encouraging more residents to get vaccinated as the Delta variant spreads in the nation’s most populous city.

New Yorkers reacted to the update on Tuesday.

About 60 per cent of all New Yorkers have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to city data. But certain areas, largely poor communities and communities of colour, have lower vaccination rates.

The policy will be enforced starting Sept. 13. It is similar to measures taken in France to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.

As part of the initiative, the city is creating the “Key to NYC Pass” to provide proof of vaccination to workers and patrons at fitness centers, restaurants and entertainment venues, the mayor said.
