Employees who are not fully vaccinated by today will be required to be tested for the virus on a weekly basis.
Northwell says those who fail to get tested in a timely manner will face adverse action.
Also starting today, you will need to show proof of vaccination to enter New York City indoor venues like restaurants, entertainment venues and gyms.
Inspections and enforcement for businesses won't begin until Sept. 13.
