NEW YORK (Reuters] – New York City’s Times Square, New York City will be filled with revelers ringing it in the New Year Dec. 31st. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday that they would only allow people to enter the square if they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Last year, the still-raging coronavirus pandemic allowed only a handful of invited guests, including essential workers, to witness in person the dropping of the iconic New Year’s Eve ball, signaling the start of the new year.

De Blasio stated to reporters that New York City is now able to recover after more than one year of severe pandemics. It will be an amazing experience, and it will be a great joy for the city.

According to de Blasio, visitors will need to present proof of vaccination as well as a photo ID. For those who wish to enter Times Square during the celebrations, there will be security checks.

Tom Harris, the president of Times Square Alliance said that spectators aged five years and over will be required to get fully vaccinated. If you cannot get vaccinated due to disability, we’ll require proof within 72 hours.

For those who are unable or unwilling to be vaccinated, masks may be needed.
