Businesses that fail to comply with New York City’s mandate requiring them to discriminate against unvaccinated individuals by denying entry will face up to $2,000 in fines, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced Monday.
Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced the Key to NYC Pass this month, bragging about cutting off Americans from everyday activities.
“We need these strong clear mandates,” de Blasio said, describing New York City as a “miraculous place literally full of wonders” only available to the vaccinated. “And if you’re vaccinated, all of that’s going to open up to you. You’ll have the key, you can open the door. If you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in many things,” he said, adding that it is time for people to “see vaccination as literally necessary to living a good and full and healthy life.”
That policy, which forces restaurants, gyms, and entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination prior to entry, formally began this week, although enforcement will not take place until next month.
On Monday, de Blasio provided additional details on the requirement, explaining that enforcement will begin September 13. Businesses that fail to adhere to the local government’s edict will face a $1,000 fine for the first offense. It will double to $2,000 for the second. – READ MORE
