All diplomats attending the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week will be required to present proof of vaccination, the city government confirmed Wednesday.

Delegates must be vaccinated to enter the debate room, the mayor’s office told the president of the assembly in a letter dated September 9.

They should also get vaccinated if they want to eat or exercise indoors, the letter adds.

New York began enforcing a vaccine mandate on Monday, requiring proof of at least one injection for many indoor activities, including restaurants and entertainment venues.

The letter signed by the New York City health commissioner and confirmed by his spokesman said that the UN discussion room was classified as a “convention center,” meaning that all attendees must be vaccinated.

“They must also show proof of vaccination before eating, drinking or exercising inside the UN campus, and in order to participate in all the wonderful entertainment, dining and fitness activities in New York City,” he said.

The letter also reminded diplomats that New York state requires everyone to wear masks on public transportation.

“New York City strongly recommends the use of universal masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status,” the note added.

The 76th session of the General Assembly begins on Tuesday and ends on the following Monday.

It will be a combined in-person and hybrid event after last year’s event took place virtually due to the pandemic.
