Eleven out of 15 Manhattan restaurants not enforcing the vaccine mandate

City officials began enforcing New York City’s vaccine mandate earlier this week, but some Manhattan restaurants have yet to get on board, according to a recent segment from Inside Edition. Producers of the television program stopped into 15 Manhattan restaurants this week claiming not to have proof of vaccination. All but four seated them indoors.

The city’s vaccine mandate — which requires restaurants, bars, and other indoor venues to check their customers for proof of vaccination — went into effect on August 16, with enforcement of the program officially beginning earlier this week. Some restaurateurs, however, especially those operating in neighborhoods with lower rates of vaccination, have expressed their reluctance to enforce the program, due to lost business and added labor.

The program is being enforced by inspectors from 13 city agencies, whose focus will reportedly be on onboarding — not fining — restaurants to start. “No one is starting this out with the intention of fining,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference on September 9. “We just want people to be safe.” Restaurants who violate the mandate will eventually be subject to fines of at least $1,000 for a first offense, $2,000 for a second offense, and $5,000 for a third offense.
