NEW YORK (Reuters) – The US state of New York has lifted all coronavirus-related restrictions after reporting that 70% of its adults have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this Tuesday. .

“This is an important milestone, and we will continue to do more,” Cuomo told a news conference, adding that the state will continue to encourage more New Yorkers to get vaccinated.

Restrictions on commercial and social situations will be suspended immediately. Cuomo said some limits will remain in place based on guidelines from the US National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and that mitigation measures are still needed in public transportation and health care facilities.

Cuomo, whose state was the epicenter of the US public health crisis of Covid-19 last year, also said that individuals and businesses can still choose to take some precautions.

The governor, who won praise for his television interviews in the early days of the pandemic but was later involved in allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse of power and mismanagement of nursing homes during the crisis, made a triumphant entry into the world New York City. The trade center marked Tuesday to mark it as a “great day.”

New York followed the path of California, where restrictions such as physical distancing, requiring masks and limiting the public in restaurants, stores and other businesses serving consumers ended on Tuesday.
