New York Will Require Proof of Vaccination To Enter Cultural Institutions

Including museums, movie theaters, zoos, concert halls, sporting facilities and more.

After announcing that restaurants and gyms in New York will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry, Mayor Bill de Blasio has now declared that the requirement will further apply to cultural institutions starting tomorrow.

This means that only those who are vaccinated are able to visit sites such as museums, movie theaters, zoos, concert halls and sporting facilities. “This is a miraculous place literally full of wonders. And, if you’re vaccinated, all that’s going to open up to you. You’ll have the key. You can open the door. But, if you’re un-vaccinated, unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in many things,” the mayor introduced the “Key to NYC Pass” mandate at a press conference.

In response to the change, the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s chief communications officer Kenneth Weine shared with Artnet: “We are wholly supportive of the city’s efforts to encourage vaccines for visitors and staff.”

The “Key to NYC Pass” mandate will officially go into effect starting on August 17.
