If you want to enjoy an indoor meal, drink or entertainment in some of the most popular urban escapes in the United States, you better have proof of vaccination or, in some cases, at least a negative result from a recent Covid-19 test with you. Some big tourism names, such as New York City, have already had mandates in place for months. But with the highly infectious Omicron variant of the coronavirus rapidly spreading in the country, more US cities are putting in restrictions.
It's a good thing to keep in mind, especially if you're traveling from a part of the country that isn't as strict about masks, testing and vaccines. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu announced Monday, December 20, that her city would be requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination for indoor dining, fitness venues, theaters and arenas. The mandate will apply to patrons and employees and will come online in phases.
