By Executive Order, New York City’s Key to NYC vaccination requirement program will take effect Tuesday, August 17. Formal enforcement will begin on Monday, September 13th. The policy requires people 12 and older to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA or WHO for bars, fitness gyms, movie and stage theatres, museums and other indoor venues.
movie theaters, music and concert venues, museums and galleries, aquariums and zoos, professional sports arenas, indoor stadiums, convention centers, exhibition halls, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, pool and billiard halls, recreational game centers, adult entertainment and indoor play areas
Businesses will be required to develop a written implementation plan that will be available for inspection. The plan should include how the vaccination status of staff and customers will be checked. Check out the City’s written Implementation Protocol Template and a more detailed template.
