Boston mayor announces new COVID-19 vaccine mandates

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu announced Monday that indoor spaces including restaurants, gyms, and entertainment venues will require proof of COVID-19 vaccines beginning Jan. 15.

Wu also announced that anyone working in such places requiring patrons to be vaccinated will also need to be vaccinated to work, according to the city’s website. Indoor mask mandates instituted in August will remain in effect.

The city will also require all city employees to have received their first dose of a vaccine by Jan. 15 with the second dose completed by Feb. 15, removing an option that workers had to receive regular testing rather than get vaccinated.

“Vaccines are the most powerful tool we have to fight this pandemic. Vaccination saves lives, and closing vaccination gaps is the best way to support and protect our communities, businesses, and cultural institutions during this pandemic,” Wu said in a statement.
