New York City was among the first to establish a vaccine passport program. This weekend, Mayor Eric Adams (D), announced that the city will end its requirement to have vaccines for events and businesses.
The Democrat Governor stated that the mandate to get vaccines for businesses will expire on March 7, so long as there are no changes in case trends.
Adams said this will allow business owners to adapt and will enable us to make the best public health decisions in New York.
The Adams administration will “evaluate the numbers” at schools this week and decide if public school children can forgo masks. Officials will lift the school mask requirement on March 7 if the outlook is positive.
Bill de Blasio, a former New York City Mayor (D), excitedly announced last August the Key to NYC Pass. This requires that businesses do not discriminate against people who are unvaccinated. De Blasio boasted about excluding unvaccinated people from all activities during his announcement speech.
“The Key to New York City” When you hear these words, I want to encourage you to think about the idea that just because someone is vaccinated, that means they can do all of the amazing things available in New York City.” He said, describing New York City a “miraculous, literally full of wonders,” but only the vaccinated have access to such “wonders”.
“And if your vaccine is up-to-date, everything will be open to you. The key will be yours, and you can unlock the door. He said that if you aren’t vaccinated, you won’t be able to participate in many activities.”
He said that “it’s time for people to see vaccination as literally essential to living a full and happy life.” Later, he bristled about the many exemption denials before concluding that the “vast majority” would get vaccinated.
He declared that “the voluntary phase is over” last year.
Parents were also warned by the Democrats that their children aged 5-11 years old would be subject to the requirements. They would be unable to participate in “great” things if they didn’t receive the jab.
Get your child vaccinated. De Blasio stated that as long as the first dose is received by December 14, children can continue to enjoy indoor dining, entertainment, and all of these wonderful things.
