The fully vaccinated sections allow people to sit next to each other. “It’s a nicer way to participate in the event,” Cuomo said.
The governor explained that the unvaccinated section has a seat or two empty between people, which limits the capacity of the place.
New York State has already allowed 50% vaccinated and 50% unvaccinated at venues. Arenas, stadiums, theaters, concert halls and other venues can choose to go at 100% capacity.
On May 17, Radio City Music Hall announced that it will open for the first time in over a year on Saturday, June 19, to host the Tribeca Film Festival’s closing night film in person and at 100 % of its capacity for fully immunized people.
