New York City plans to issue a mandate that all those who wish to visit its museums and other cultural institutions must be vaccinated against Covid-19.

The policy will require vaccinations for visitors to the city’s museums, concert halls, aquariums, and zoos, a city official told The New York Times.

Children under the age of 12, who are not yet eligible for the vaccine, will be urged to wear a mask and must visit the institutions along with a vaccinated person.

The City Hall official told the paper that they plan to spend $10m on a media campaign to inform New Yorkers and tourists of the new requirements.
