Unvaccinated Yankees and Mets players allowed to play home games

According to reports, New York City mayor Eric Adams will lift the private-sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Adams exempting athletes and performers from the city's vaccine mandate for private workers, a move that will allow players such as Aaron Judge to play home games.

According to a person familiar with the upcoming announcement, there's no authorization to discuss it publicly.

Sources confirm mayor Adams will take action on Thursday. However, Adams wasn't sure about lifting the Covid mandate.

"Everyone is focused on the sports area. They're focusing on one person. I'm focusing on 9 million people," the mayor said on March 16. "I'm not looking at one person. I'm looking at my city not closing down again."

The city's sweeping vaccine mandate for workers will still apply to people with other types of jobs, including government employees.

This month, concerns had been raised that the rule would also impact Major League Baseball.

Among the unknown unvaccinated Yankees and Mets players, we can imply Aaron Judge is not one of them.

The 'judge' dodged a question about his vaccination status. Common move for anti-vaxers figures around the pandemic.

Adams, a declared Mets fan, is scheduled to make an "economic and health-related announcement" Thursday morning at Citi Field, where the Mets play, according to his official calendar that was released Wednesday night.

The New York Yankees open their season at home against the Boston Red Sox on April 7.

Both the club's president and New York's government were "working with city hall and all other appropriate officials on this matter."

Mayor Adams rolled back vaccine mandates and other coronavirus restrictions, including on Tuesday when he said masks could become optional for children under 5 starting April 4.

His predecessor, former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, made vaccination mandatory as a workplace safety rule last year, before leaving office.
