Large outdoor venues including amphitheaters, racetracks and sports stadiums will soon be opening to full capacity in New York with special seating for vaccinated attendees.

The new occupancy rules are only limited by a caveat to provide patrons with the ability to maintain the required social distance of six feet. It applies to all outdoor sports, performing arts and live entertainment, and horse and auto racing venues statewide, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday.

Patrons will also still be required to wear face coverings and follow other applicable health protocols for venues. The rules take effect May 19.

Further, fully vaccinated attendees at the outdoor venues may be spaced next to one another, instead of six-feet apart, in assigned, seated sections that are designated solely for fully vaccinated people.

Those under the age of 16 who are not yet eligible for the vaccine may be seated with a vaccinated adult in a fully vaccinated section, which will be among the first nationally to separate out unvaccinated people at large events.

People seated in the vaccinated sections will have to provide proof of full immunization status, which can be provided through paper form, digital application or the state’s Excelsior Pass.
