The obligation to present a COVID passport for access to interiors in New York enters into force

This Monday the new regulations have come into force that requires proof with documentation that one is vaccinated against the coronavirus to access most of the interior facilities of the city.

Anyone over the age of twelve must present proof that the vaccination cycle has concluded to access restaurants, gyms, swimming pools, cinemas or extracurricular activities.

Minors between the ages of five and eleven must demonstrate that they have received at least the first dose of the vaccine to access and from January 29, both doses will be required.

Likewise, private sector workers have an obligation to be vaccinated, in what is a novelty throughout the United States, reports the US press. Vaccination is also mandatory for public sector workers.

These restrictions were announced by the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, who referred to the risk posed by the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

In recent weeks, infections have soared in New York City and there is already speculation about the suspension of a large part of the events scheduled for New Year’s Eve. Anyone entering Times Square must wear a mask and show that they have the full vaccination schedule.

New York State reported a daily record of infections on December 24: 49,708 new cases. On December 25, 36,454 infections were reported, a figure that is probably much higher due to the holidays and the closure of laboratories for Christmas.
