Williams' Statement On New NYC Vaccination Requirements

August 3rd, 2021

Press Release

"Vaccination screens for a wide range of activities and spaces are one of the best ways we can both encourage more New Yorkers to get vaccinated and limit the spread of the Delta variant as we continue that work. I thank and applaud the Mayor for announcing this policy and urge businesses to adopt it voluntarily ahead of the mandated deadlines.

"I also believe that vaccine requirements and mask requirements are not mutually exclusive - masks will help us to keep case rates down as vaccination rates go up, and requiring masks indoors for a limited period, regardless of vaccination status, is a critical part of protecting our city amid the current surge."
