As of May 19, 2021 New York State has implemented the CDC's Interim Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People. Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks or be socially distanced, however unvaccinated children and adults should wear a face covering and practice social distancing. Face coverings are required to enter any municipal building, regardless of vaccination status.
