According to the new guidelines for businesses in New York state starting tomorrow whether patrons mask or not mask will be up to the businesses themselves. The guidelines say that businesses are authorized to require that vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals continue to wear masks but are not required to. Many businesses are going to go on the honor system where those who are vaccinated do not have to show a card or Excelsior Pass to be able to take off the mask. Restaurants are further given guidance to establish vaccinated sections. University at Buffalo Professor of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Dr Nancy Nielsen says as long as you aren’t immunocompromised, “if you’re fully vaccinated even if a non-vaccinated person comes in without a mask, they’re the ones at risk, not you. Anybody who’s not vaccinated, if you want to be safe, go get the vaccine, the quicker the better.”
