On May 19, 2021, New York adopted the CDC guidance for wearing masks & face coverings. Many of the New York Forward initiatives, launched in the spring of 2020, are also being rolled back or modified, at the same time.
The top three things you should know for May 19th are:
  • Fully vaccinated individuals will not need a mask and are not required to socially distance in many circumstances.
  • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated, and over two years of age, will continue to be required to wear masks in public spaces, and maintain 6 foot social distancing.
  • New York State offers the “Excelsior Pass”, which is proof of vaccination, and  can be downloaded on a person's phone, or printed off of a computer. For businesses who wish to check for proof of vaccination status, the Excelsior Pass offers a reliable and convenient way to check.  Alternatively, businesses may use the honor system, and request that patrons who are not fully vaccinated wear a mask.
