BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Mayor Wu suggested on Tuesday during that Boston may soon drop its vaccination requirement for indoor activities.

She said the guideline for dropping the mandate would be city hospitals dropping below 95% ICU capacity, with less than 200 daily COVID hospitalizations and a 5% community positivity rate.

Wu said the city is already below the threshold for ICU capacity, and sits at a 7.4% community positivity rate with 387 COVID hospitalizations, with those metrics also dropping.

Wu also said the city is not yet ready to consider dropping its indoor mask mandate.

The proof of vaccination requirement mandates proof of vaccination for indoor recreation like dining, gyms, and bars, and was first instated in December
