NYS Coronavirus Update: Big News for Baseball Fans -- Broadway to Return in September

Our safe and careful economic recovery and reopening continues.

This applies to outdoor music concerts, live entertainment, baseball games, horse races and more. Additionally, fully vaccinated attendees at these events may be seated at full capacity in assigned sections—providing another incentive for New Yorkers to get vaccinated.
