New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that the state will adopt the CDC’s new mask guidelines starting Wednesday. Masks will no longer be required for vaccinated people, except in nursing homes, schools, homeless and health-care facilities. Wednesday also marks the next stage of the state’s reopening as most capacity restrictions will be lifted, which was previously announced. The subway, meanwhile, returned to 24-hour service on Monday.
