New York City will require workers and patrons at indoor businesses to show proof of vaccination starting on Sept. 13, becoming the first major U.S. city to take such action amid a surge of new cases nationwide driven by the highly transmissible delta variant.

The new mandate announced Tuesday, dubbed the “Key to NYC Pass,” will apply to indoor dining, gyms and entertainment venues.

“The Key to New York City. When you hear those words, I want you to imagine the notion that because someone’s vaccinated they can do all the amazing things that are available in this city,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
