Of ALL the cultural institutions in NYC, only ONE (so far) will stop requiring proof of “vaccination,” in line with Mayor Adams’ loosening of the rules (and—fittingly—that ONE a Holocaust museum)

​[Posted to List Serve on March 7th.]

From a subscriber:

I’ve contacted virtually every single cultural, arts, and similar institution in NYC, and every single one of them either did not respond at all or said that they’re not changing their policies (or at least not yet)—except. . . .

Subject: RE: Mayor Adams plans to soon phase out NYC’s indoor COVID vaccine and mask rules

Thank you for contacting us at the museum.

As we already know, Mayor Adams has announced that the City is lifting the Key to NYC requirements as of Monday, March 7th. Therefore, as of Monday (3.7.2022), MJH will not be requiring visitors [to] show proof of vaccination at the front door and indoor masking requirements will be modified. 

Masks will be recommended and encouraged in non-visitor accessible office areas. Staff are required to continue to wear masks in the galleries and other public areas. With colleagues.

For visitors:  Masks will be recommended and encouraged. 

We hope this answers your question.

Take care and stay safe.
