Full vaccination will also be required for PUBLIC staff, although medical or religious exemptions will be accepted. Masks will be required in all public spaces as well. PUBLIC is the hotel first New York hotel to issue such regulations.

“The health, safety, and wellbeing of our guests and staff is the only thing that matters to us,” says Ian Schrager, hotelier and founder of PUBLIC. Naturally, we will do everything and anything we can possibly do to protect them. After all, we have been entrusted to look after them while they are with us. We take that responsibility to heart. With these measures in place our guests will be able to relax, enjoy, and experience the hotel and all of the exciting things it has to offer in the knowledge they won’t get sick or make anyone else sick. Indeed, we need to beat COVID-19 together. After all, looking after people is our business. We just didn’t see how to fulfill this responsibility without taking action.”
