New York City to require vaccination proof for indoor dining, gyms, entertainment

New York City will require proof of vaccination to participate in indoor activities, including visiting gyms and restaurants, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.

Why it matters: The mandate is considered to be the first of its kind in the U.S., according to de Blasio. France and Italy announced similar requirements last month.

  • Last month, the mayor announced that all city workers would be required to get vaccinated or agree to submit to weekly testing.

State of play: The mandate will move forward beginning the week of Aug. 16 and be fully enforced starting Sept. 13, when schools reopen and people start returning to in-person work.

  • New York City will create a health pass called the "Key to NYC Pass" for New Yorkers to provide proof of vaccination for gyms, indoor dining, and live performances and entertainment.

What they're saying: "Not everyone is going to agree with this, I understand that," de Blasio said at a press conference. "But for so many people, this is going to be the life-saving act. That we're putting a mandate in place that is going to guarantee a much higher level of vaccination in this city, and that is the key to protecting people and the key to our recovery."

The big picture: It's the most aggressive move yet to increase vaccinations in New York City. Residents have been able to choose from an array of incentives for getting inoculated, from getting free tickets to city attractions to $100 pre-paid credit cards.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
