After announcing that New York’s restaurants and gyms will require proof that they have received COVID-19 vaccines for entry, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that this requirement will also apply to cultural institutions beginning tomorrow. This means that only people who have been vaccinated will be allowed to visit museums, concert halls, zoos, and other venues. “This place is miraculous and full of wonders. All that is possible if you are vaccinated. The key will be yours. The key can be used to open the door. You can open the door.” The “Key to NYC Pass mandate” will be in effect from August 17.
