Indoor Mask Mandates Still in Place As New Yorkers Raise Concerns About New CDC Guidelines – Gothamist

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is currently deliberating over whether to change New York’s mask policy, which still indicates that everyone who can “medically tolerate” a face covering must wear one in public if they’re unable to distance themselves from others. The state adopted the CDC’s last change on April 27th, relaxing mask usage for fully vaccinated people for some social gatherings.

But Cuomo and his health team are mulling whether to add the new rules, which lift restrictions outdoors and almost anywhere indoors, except for public transit, medical settings like doctor’s offices, on planes, and in congregate living settings such as nursing homes and prisons. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has yet to issue any policy changes, given the governor’s decision must first be made.
