New York City officials are telling people to put the mask on when you’re indoors, even if you’ve been vaccinated.
We have some new challenges now. It's getting colder out. We know that means more people inside. That means COVID spreads more easily,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
This isn’t a requirement, but it’s being strongly recommended because of the Omicron variant.There are no known cases in the U.S., but health officials believe it’s inevitable that it’ll reach us.
“Holiday gatherings, obviously the potential challenges with Omicron. It's time to remind people and double down and say, even if you started to move away from masks before, we're telling you, get those masks back on now,” de Blasio said.
