Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Announces Fully Vaccinated May Go Maskless

NEW YORK —The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America celebrates the announcement from New York Governor Cuomo, in accord with guidance from the CDC and the White House, that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need masks in most circumstances. This news is a clear indication that a successful vaccination program will be key to overcoming the pandemic and returning to a more normal life for all people.

While those who are fully vaccinated have achieved a significant measure of protection, all faithful must be careful to protect those who are not vaccinated, including those with pre-existing conditions and children under the age of twelve.

At this time, the Direct Archdiocesan District is lifting the mandatory mask mandate and social distancing guidance for those faithful who are fully vaccinated in New York State. The Archdiocese encourages all parishes to continue following local and state health and safety guidelines where applicable.

New York eased its mask and social distancing mandates again Wednesday, but people shouldn't be throwing their face coverings in the garbage just yet.

Masks are still required for everyone in many settings. Millions of unvaccinated New Yorkers still have to wear them in most public places. Private businesses can still set rules that exceed state requirements.
