Along with that a new mask mandate is being issued, or should I say vaccination mandate. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is mandating that people be vaccinated in order to participate in any indoor and outdoor activities in the city. This will be called the “Key To NYC Pass” you will need to show proof of vaccination to enter restaurants, gyms, theaters etc. This will be implemented on August 16th but will start to be enforced September 13th.
