Gov. Cuomo: New York will adopt CDC guidelines on masking, distancing for fully vaccinated people

NEW YORK CITY (WROC) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo held a coronavirus briefing Monday from Radio Music City Hall in New York City where he announced new metrics, the state’s decision on CDC guidance change for masking, reopening updates, and more.


The new guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters but will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues — even removing the need for masks or social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated. The CDC will also no longer recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks outdoors in crowds.


“We took a couple of days to analyze what it would be,” Gov. Cuomo said. “We aligned it with our guidance, we’re announcing that today. We’re then giving vendors, local government notice today. It goes into effect Wednesday, so they have a day to make adjustments. I’m sure they’ll say it’s too fast, they need more than a day, but that’s where we are.”



Hopefully, this will speed up the opening of museums and other cultural institutions in New York. It might also speed up Broadway coming back online which the city desperately needs.

1. "Masks will still be required on public transportation, in nursing homes, homeless shelters,...

correctional facilities, schools, and health care facilities."

2. Those make sense.

Though I am not looking forward to Metro North with a mask in summer (I can only Imagine what the 4 train is like near Broad).

I hope NYC prioritizes Hvac systems in the schools. If mask wearing for in person learning is mandatory, it is important that the schools have the air conditioning running properly.
