I'm emailing because I'm excited to see you on SATURDAY September18th for our annual Jellybean Rocks The House - Boat Ride. I want to congratulate all of our New Yorkers for having one of the highest vaccination rates in the country, currently at 80 percent.
We have just been informed that CIRCLE LINE will not let anyone on the boat who cannot provide proof of being fully vaccinated. As you already know
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that starting on August 17th, the city will impose a vaccine mandate on a wide range of public facing entertainment businesses. The plan, called ‘Key To NYC‘ applies to movie theaters, live music and concert venues, professional sports arenas, indoor stadiums, convention centers, exhibition halls, performing arts theaters, and nightclubs, among others. “New York City has one mission: defeat the delta variant and build a recovery for all of us,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “The Key to NYC sends a powerful message that vaccination will unlock our city’s potential, and we’ll stop at nothing to save lives and keep New Yorkers safe.” While the vaccine mandate goes into effect on August 17th, enforcement, backed by a multi-agency coalition, won’t begin until September 13.
For the avoidance of doubt or clarity :::
Proof of vaccine under the mayor’s orders include:
- A photo or hard copy of their CDC vaccination card
- NYC COVID Safe App
- New York State Excelsior App
- Official vaccine record
- A photo or hard copy of an official vaccination record of a vaccine administered outside the United States for one of the following vaccines: AstraZeneca/SK Bioscience, Serum Institute of India/COVISHIELD and Vaxzevria, Sinopharm, or Sinovac.
Anyone that is not fully vaccinated can take advantage of a full refund, provide you contact via email by Wednesday, September 1st, 2021 by 9;00pm EDT. Unfortunately, we cannot honor any refunds past this date. Being fully vaccinated not only protects you, but it also protects others. We need to look out for everyone in our community. I look forward to seeing you in a few weeks and hope you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe.
