Happy days are here again!

The City of Boston announced today that its proof of vaccine requirement for indoor businesses has been lifted. All three key thresholds have been meet:

• Fewer than 95% of ICU beds are occupied
• Fewer than 200 COVID-19 hospitalizations per day
• A community positivity rate below 5%, as defined by the Boston Public Health Commission’s 7-day moving average

Earlier today we reported that the city was two out of three and oh so close!

Wu previously said the order would remain in effect until fewer than 95 percent of ICU beds were occupied in Boston, COVID-19 hospitalizations fell under 200 per day and the city averaged a community positivity rate below 5 percent over seven days.

As of Friday, the city’s ICU capacity was 90.7 percent, its community positivity rate was 4 percent, and it was averaging 196 hospitalizations per day, according to data shared by the City of Boston.

The requirement had just entered its second phase this week requiring proof of full vaccination for people ages 12 and over.

What about masks?

Earlier this week it was announced that Massachusetts would be relaxing the indoor mask mandate for the fully vaccinated.

According to WBZ, Mayor Wu has said the indoor mask mandate will stay in place for now in Boston, even if the vaccine passport policy is dropped soon.

But this news of the proof of vaccine mandate being lifted is a step in the right direction!
