New York Yacht Club's COVID-19 POLICY
Effective March 7, 2022
Last fall, the Club instituted entry checks for proof of vaccination in response to the elevating case rates. But now the daily case rates in the New York/New England area are dropping rapidly. A very high percentage of our membership is vaccinated and boosted, so the health risk in the event of a breakthrough infection (by the current variants) is rarely severe/fatal.
Therefore, effective March 7, the Club intends to suspend vaccination-checking upon entry at both the 44th Street Clubhouse and Harbour Court.
We recognize that the risk of infection has decreased, but is not gone, and that future variants may change the situation and the required response. We continue to recommend that members, their families and guests, get vaccinated and boosted if they have not yet done so, and continue to take appropriate cautions to manage the risk of COVID-19.
