On September 20, 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that New York City will end the vaccine mandate for the private sector, which has been in effect since December 27, 2021. As we reported, the vaccine mandate required workers in New York City who go to work in-person or interact with the public to show proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 to their employers, unless they obtained an exemption for medical or religious reasons.

As of November 1, 2022, private employers in New York City will no longer need to require COVID-19 vaccination to allow employees to enter their workspaces or interact with the public during the workday. That being said, these employers are still permitted, and encouraged by New York City, to enforce their own mandatory vaccine policies, subject to compliance with applicable federal and local guidance.
