BOSTON, MA – Boston Mayor Michelle Wu was heckled and jeered by residents as she announced her sweeping new COVID-19 restrictions upon the residents of Boston.
Starting on January 15, 2022, to address rising COVID-19 cases and encourage vaccination, individuals will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 in order to enter certain indoor spaces in Boston. People working in those locations will also be required to have received their vaccines.
Face masks are required in all indoor public settings in the City of Boston for all people older than 2 years old.
“The best way for Boston to stay healthy and support our communities, our businesses, and cultural institutions is for more people to get vaccinated,” Wu said. “The B Together policy helps us do that.”
Wu called her new policy “B Together”.
Employees working in those spaces will also be required to be vaccinated. Covered businesses are responsible for checking proof of vaccination and posting a notice about the COVID-19 vaccine requirement — and the City is here to help. We have a printable image of the notice that covered businesses must post at their entrance.
