New York City To Reopen Times Square To Fully Jabbed Revelers On New Year’s Eve

Fact checked
Times Square

Times Square is reopening for New Year’s Eve celebration this year.

But anyone planning on celebrating the New Year’s Eve party will need to be fully vaccinated against Covid or provide proof of a negative test to join in on the festivities.

On Tuesday, Mayor Bill De Blasio announced that people would be allowed back into Times Square to welcome the new year, but there would be strict Covid-19 vaccination guidelines in place. 

RT reports: De Blasio said the city wants to invite “hundreds of thousands of folks,” as long as each one is inoculated against Covid-19.

“Join the crowd, join the joy, join a historic moment as New York City provides further evidence to the world that we are 100% back,” said De Blasio. 

The mayor himself received scrutiny at least year’s New Year’s Eve event after dancing maskless while the city remained shut down.

The president of the Times Square Alliance, Tom Harris, has announced that all attendees must be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Those with a disability preventing them from being inoculated must provide a negative Covid-19 test, taken within the previous 72 hours. Children aged five and younger can only attend if they are accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult. 

The ball drop in Times Square draws thousands to New York City every year, with millions more watching the celebration on television. The size of the event, the mayor claimed, required much greater precaution to be taken than at other events in the city, which was under some of the strictest Covid-19 shutdowns in the country last year. 

“It makes sense to protect everyone,” De Blasio said about enforcing vaccinations amidst the crowd, which typically gathers in Times Square hours before the actual ball drops to signify the new year’s arrival. 

The Times Square announcement has been met with some skepticism by critics, with many pointing out the potential difficulties in enforcement, as well as the fact that those who go to the event will still likely interact with people at restaurants and bars before gathering for the celebration. 


  1. Oh how fun! Nothing beats showing your papers so you can stand in the freezing cold with no access to a bathroom, for hours and hours, surrounded by fellow shedders. Isn’t asking for an ID racist anyway? The rules change so much, it’s hard to keep up sometimes.

      • Jan 6th was all staged. Nobody died etc. A bunch of traitors. More than likely Ashley is an eastern star. Etc
        I’d show you the evidence but newspunch doesn’t let me leave links.

        Irrefutable evidence.
        And the fact the system isn’t talking about it proves the entire court proceedings & investigation is a fugazi as well.

        • Thanks yes, but I did figure out it was a staged event, even before it happened. I am well aware of these false flag events and how they use them and people for their own agendas. Of course, they’ve been doing this for thousands of years, no new thing under the sun. Thanks for the referral to Odysee. I’m in Africa.
