Governor Cuomo announced that New York has hit a 70% adult vaccination rate. This means that effective immediately the social and commercial restrictions are lifted on all industries, including sports & recreation, construction, manufacturing, trade, child care, camps, food services, offices, real estate, buildings, agriculture, fishing, forestry, amusement & family entertainment, personal care services, gyms, retail, malls and movie theaters.
The end of the restrictions also includes all rules related to social gatherings, capacity limitations, social distancing rules, cleaning and disinfecting protocols, health screenings and contact information for tracing.
The Governor noted that the CDC federal mask mandate remains in effect for pre-K-12 schools, public transit, and healthcare settings.
