New York City released information regarding its vaccine requirements with the release of Emergency Executive Order 317 on Wednesday, which mandates that employers in New York City require ALL employees working in-person in New York City (at any location where an individual is in the presence of at least one other person) receive at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by December 27, 2021. If a second shot is required (Pfizer, Moderna), employees have 45 days (ie: February 10, 2022) to present proof of a second dose. The mandate goes beyond employees, as entities covered by the EO are not permitted to allow a patron, full- or part-time employee, intern, volunteer, or contractor to enter covered premises without displaying proof of vaccination and identification. A child under the age of 18 only needs proof of vaccination, and not additional identification. If you or your company are performing work in the City, or are simply visiting, make sure you are aware of the rules and requirements beforehand. As an employer, you also have to maintain a record of proof of vaccination for your employees. For more information, click here to read the full Executive Order.
