New vaccination requirements in NYC for over 5’s

    Unless I’ve missed it, it appears that NYC have updated their Covid rules which effectively bans over 5’s from indoor venues (restaurants, tourism sites etc.) unless they can demonstrate they have had a single vax (increasing to double vax’d in January, I think).

    It doesn’t seem to have been covered widely in the UK yet and I’m sure could catch a lot of people out. We have friends who were meant to be travelling on Friday who are now cancelling and unless things change, it puts paid to our Easter trip.

    Has anyone seen anything different?

    I saw something similar last week for our cruise departing Florida next October – over 5’s are not welcome on-board without vaccination. This is due to a recent change in the CDC guidance. The further complication is our government have just reiterated that their are no plans to vaccinate primary school children so I probably couldn’t get my 5yo vaccinated even if I wanted to. Good job I have a long time for things to change before next October.

    I guess it depends on what you want to do with your time there. Many restaurants have outdoor seating in sidewalk shelters that I don’t believe require vaccination. Museums, boat trips, viewing platforms, etc, all check vaccination certificates pretty diligently, though. It’s also worth noting that you don’t need certificates for public transport or for shops.

    It’s a whole other point, but I’m not sure I’d be taking young kids to NY myself. I’m sure you know what your own kids enjoy, but mine would have hated being stuck in a crowded city at that age.
