Starting this week, a Covid-19 vaccination may determine where you can go out to eat. New York City on Monday begins enforcing its vaccination requirements for restaurant patrons and employees. Other cities such as San Francisco are also requiring shots to eat indoors, while some states are banning vaccine passports.
Here’s what to know if you own, work for or eat at a restaurant in New York City:
New York is requiring that all people 12 years of age and older have at least one Covid-19 shot to eat or drink indoors. Those rules apply to sit-down service at restaurants, bars, nightclubs, hotels, food courts and malls. They also apply to indoor dining at grocery stores, hotels, universities and catering halls.
