If You are Vaccinated, no more mask requirement
Written by Dan Fischer on May 17, 2021
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says the state will no longer require vaccinated people to wear face masks beginning this Wednesday.
The move follows last week’s changes to CDC guidelines, meaning masks are only required for vaccinated people when in mass transit, nursing homes, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, schools, and health care facilities.
The state is still requiring masks for indoor spaces if people aren’t vaccinated, while individual businesses and venues can have mask rules if they so choose. Cuomo says Wednesday is a natural time to enact new mask rules. That’s when the Tri-state region will also eliminate percentage-based capacity limits.
