WHEREAS, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted New York City and its economy, and is addressed effectively only by joint action of the City, State, and Federal governments; and 

WHEREAS, the state of emergency to address the threat and impacts of COVID-19 in the City of New York first declared in Emergency Executive Order No. 98, issued on March 12, 2020, and extended most recently by Emergency Executive Order No. 46, issued on February 28, 2022, remains in effect; and

WHEREAS, this Order is given because of the propensity of the virus to spread person-to-person, and also because the actions taken to prevent such spread have led to property loss and damage; and

WHEREAS, the seven-day average of COVID-19 cases and number of COVID-19 hospitalizations have declined significantly since the peak of the surge driven by the Omicron variant and have steadily remained lower; and

WHEREAS, Governor Kathy Hochul announced an end of the State’s mask requirement for schools and certain other indoor spaces based on analysis of key COVID-19 data trends; and

WHEREAS, on March 1, 2022, New York State Commissioner of Health Mary T. Bassett issued updated guidance removing the requirement for masking in schools, and on March 2, 2022, issued a determination eliminating the requirement to wear masks in indoor spaces other than in healthcare settings, certain adult care facilities, correctional facilities and detention centers, homeless and other shelters, and public transportation conveyances and transportation hubs; and

WHEREAS, the Key to NYC program, set forth in Emergency Executive Order No. 317 and extended most recently by Emergency Executive Order No. 49, has required patrons, employees, interns, volunteers and contractors of covered entities, including restaurants, indoor gyms, and event spaces, to provide proof of vaccination; and

WHEREAS, as of March 1, 2022, 96 percent of New York City adult residents and 86 percent of residents of all ages have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine; and

WHEREAS, in light of the significantly reduced incidence of COVID-19 in the City of New York, I am ending the Key to NYC program; and

WHEREAS, employers that have been subject to the Key to NYC requirements have been exempt from similar worker vaccination and record-keeping requirements set forth in the Order of the Commissioner of Health and Mental Hygiene, dated December 13, 2021 (“the COH Order”); and

WHEREAS, to continue treating in a similar manner workers who have been subject to the Key to NYC vaccination requirements and workers subject to the COH Order, and to avoid imposing new record-keeping requirements on employers that have until now been subject to the Key to NYC program, this Order requires covered entities to continue to require proof of vaccination from covered workers and to continue to keep the same records as they have been required to keep under the Key to NYC program;

NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the powers vested in me by the laws of the State of New York and the City of New York, including but not limited to the New York Executive Law, the New York City Charter and the Administrative Code of the City of New York, and the common law authority to protect the public in the event of an emergency:
