On Sunday afternoon February 27th, Governor Kathy Hochul announced the following:
- New York State would lift mask mandates for public schools on Wed. March 2nd.
- Local districts could decide their own masking rules.
What About NYC Mandates?
Shortly after Gov. Hochul’s announcement, Mayor Eric Adams stated that if the five boroughs continue to see a “low level” of COVID-19 risk, NYC will lift the following on March 7th, 2022 :
- the indoor mask mandate for public school students and;
- the “Key to NYC” vaccine mandate, requiring restaurants, gyms and entertainment venues to ask patrons and customers for proof of vaccination.
NYC’s other vaccine mandates, including its private sector mandate, remain in place at this time.
If all goes according to plan, Mayor Adams is expected to make an official announcement on March 5th …. Fingers crossed!
