Irving will now be able to take the floor when the Nets play the Charlotte Hornets in Brooklyn on Sunday
Mayor Adams plans to announce the policy change that has benched the Brooklyn Nets point guard all season on Thursday, 据报道.
The move would also lift the mandate in time for Major League Baseball’s Opening Day at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, as well as Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden.
The mandate was introduced on 27 December and meant that New York City businesses were required that their employees get vaccinated against Covid-19.
The change will now allow an exception to the rule for athletes and performers.
The mayor is expected to make the announcement at Citi Field, and will be joined by guests from the sports and entertainment world, according to ABC7.
Mr Adams said last week that he was not worried about the impact of the mandate on the city’s professional sports teams.
“Everyone that’s focusing on a sports area, they’re focusing on one person,“ 他说.
“我专注于 9 万人. 所以, I am not looking at one person, I’m looking at my city not closing down again, not having to deal with this crisis again.”
Mr Irving will now be able to take the floor when the Nets play the Charlotte Hornets in Brooklyn on Sunday.
The Yankees’ first home game is 7 四月, the NBA play-in tournament begins on 12 April and the Mets’ home opener is 15 四月.
