Is the vaccine the Mark of the Beast?


Your Guide to Masks

Updated Aug. 13, 2021

 

Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).

They Key to NYC is getting vaccinated!

You’ll be able to go out to eat — inside! COVID-19 vaccines are now required for all employees and customers to engage in indoor dining, indoor fitness, and indoor entertainment and performance events in New York City. Proof of vaccination can be easily documented via the NY Excelsior Pass, CDC vaccine card or records, or the NYC COVID Safe App, which you can use to demonstrate proof of immunization. The documentation you upload into this app stays on your phone only and is not shared with anyone! Download it for free on the Android and iOS stores. Learn more about this requirement at nyc.gov/keytonyc.

Back to School

65% of 12—17 year olds have at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This is a higher percentage than any other big city! Although fewer children have gotten COVID-19, children can still be infected with the virus, get sick from it and spread it to others. Everyone 12 years and older should get vaccinated to help protect against further spread! Learn more here.

USEFUL INFORMATION

 

Policy Updates:

  • As of 9/22, the FDA has authorized booster shots for people who are 65+ and those who are at increased risk of severe outcomes, including those at risk from occupation.

    • Next, the CDC ACIP will determine the clinical guidance about who will be recommended for the booster shot, and the timing of the recommended boosters.

    • Once the ACIP guidance is made, the CDC will then give final word to the country regarding operationalizing the guidance.

  • Operationally, nothing has changed today – Only those who are severely or moderately immunocompromised are authorized to get a third dose at this time: https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/covid/covid-19-third-dose.pdf
