NEW YORK – Mayor Bill de Blasio says “all options are on the table” when it comes to possibly require vaccines for patrons at restaurants across New York City.
“We need mandates,” de Blasio said in a TV interview on Friday morning.
He made the comments a day after famed New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer said he would require all employees and customers to show proof of vaccination before working, eating, or drinking inside any of his restaurants.
Meyer owns 18 locations, including hot spots Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe. Employees who were not currently vaccinated had 45 days to do so or find a new job, said Meyer.
