- NYC Orders Restaurants And Gyms To Demand Proof Of Vaccination From All Customers

Update (1210ET): NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has officially announced plans to implement his first-in-the-US policy requiring proof of COVID vaccination in order to participate in indoor activities like dining indoors, and going to the gym. As the NYT reported earlier, the policy will be phased in this month, taking full effect when school begins in September.
Once it takes effect, only roughly one in six of the city’s black residents will be able to work out and dine out, unless many more of them get vaccinated.
Maybe it was the rare laudatory op-ed in the thoroughly anti-de Blasio New York Post that inspired the mayor to impose even more restrictive COVID measures, but after being criticized for his refusal to order mandatory masking in NYC, Mayor Bill de Blasio is reportedly planning new measures that double-down on his “vaccine-focused” approach to combating the delta variant.
After the Bay Area and Louisiana each adopted mandatory mask rules, it appears Mayor De Blasio is doubling-down on his vaccine-focused approach, ordering even more restrictive policies. According to the NYT, the mayor plans to announced that NYC will require proof of vaccination for people participating in a range of indoor activities, from indoor dining to going to the gyms and performances on Broadway and elsewhere. The mayor’s plan is “his latest attempt to spur more vaccinations”, the NYT said, as the city’s adult vaccination rate hovers at just 66%.
