Islam News – After 14 months of sacrifice and suffering, New York City finally lifted most coronavirus restrictions today. The occasion was less a free-for-all and more a soft opening, as New Yorkers gingerly explored their reshaped city.
Most businesses, including restaurants, stores, salons and gyms, are now able to open to 100 percent capacity, but only if they can still maintain six feet of distance between people or groups. The same is true for houses of worship. Vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks in most circumstances — indoors or outdoors — but individual businesses are free to set stricter rules. Masks are still mandatory on public transit and in schools, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes and health care settings.
