NY lifts most COVID restrictions effective 6/15/21

Healthcare settings, including chiropractic offices,  must continue to use face masks

Governor Cuomo has announced today that New York has hit a 70% adult vaccination rate. This means that effective immediately the social and commercial restrictions are lifted on all industries, including sports & recreation, construction, manufacturing, trade, child care, camps, food services, offices, real estate, buildings, agriculture, fishing, forestry, amusement & family entertainment, personal care services, gyms, retail, malls and movie theaters.

The Governor noted that the CDC federal mask mandate remains in effect for pre-K-12 schools, public transit, and healthcare settings.

As everyone is aware,  New York State has previously adopted the updated CDC guidelines regarding the use of face masks.  Per the CDC guidelines regarding healthcare settings, the use of masks in your practice for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals is mandatory.   

Continued use of face masks is required by New York State in your chiropractic practice.
