The news was in the air and only now has been made official: to participate in the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Times Square will be necessary to be FULLY VACCINATED!
We are sure that this news will create some discontent among those who have decided not to vaccinate, being an outdoor event.
More info about New Year's Eve in Times Square
About 44 days before New Year’s Eve, the city of New York has taken this decision to allow people to stay close to each other in safety and celebrate together the arrival of the new year.
So it will be back to a New Year’s Eve in Times Square like it was in 2019, with a party, performances by artists and the eager anticipation of the Ball Drop.
What does Fully Vaccinated mean?
In order to attend the New Year’s Eve event in Times Square, you will be required to show proof that you have received your second dose of the vaccine (if on your vaccination cycle) for at least 14 days. If your vaccination schedule only includes 1 dose, you must show that you have received it at least 14 days ago.
From what age must you be "Fully Vaccinated" to participate in New Year's Eve in Times Square?
The rule written above applies to ALL those over the age of 5.
What about those who for health reasons cannot be vaccinated?
In this case you will need to present a PCR test done at least within 72 hours of the event and, if possible, will be required to keep a mask on throughout the event.
How will access be controlled?
To access the area you will be required, as for access to a restaurant, to show proof of having completed the necessary vaccination cycle (see rules above) + an ID with name and photo.
