Gov. Andrew Cuomo announed that most of the remaining COVID-19-related restrictions will be lifted when 70 percent of New Yorkers aged 18 and older receive their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination. So far 68.6% of adults in NY have received at least the first dose.
The New York Forward industry specific guidelines — including capacity restrictions, social distancing, cleaning and disinfection, health screening, and contact information for tracing — will become optional for retail, food services, offices, gyms and fitness centers, amusement and family entertainment, hair salons, barber shops and personal care services, among other commercial settings.
Large-scale event venues, pre-K to 12 schools, public transit, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and healthcare settings must continue to follow the State's guidelines until more New Yorkers are vaccinated.
