NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Music lovers and sports fans had plenty to cheer about over the weekend, as several venues returned to full capacity in New York City.
As CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reported, all COVID restrictions will be lifted Monday at Citi Field. Fans will no longer have to wear masks, social distance, or provide proof of vaccination or a negative test.
“It feels great, it feels great,” Yankees fan Matthew Warbet told CBS2.
From one sign of New York’s comeback to another, Madison Square Garden hosted the Foo Fighters on Sunday night. Fans snaked around MSG for the first 100% capacity concert in the New York area since March 2020.
Unlike Citi Field and Yankee Stadium, though, all guests over the age of 16 had to show proof of vaccination before going through the door. Some protested outside the venue, saying the vaccine should not be required for events.
“Should we be forced to take a vaccine or lose our freedom?” said John Allenville, of upstate.
