The NYSE is adjusting its COVID protocols and will allow more people to be in its iconic market.

Starting May 10, floor community members who have been fully vaccinated will be exempt from certain restrictions, including a random testing program, according to an internal memo. They will also be allowed to remove face masks, although they must continue to maintain social distancing (6 feet or more).

If 100% of a trading company’s ground staff have been fully vaccinated (meaning 2 weeks or more has passed since the final dose of a vaccine), the company will be allowed to bring them back in full. The memo was first reported by Bloomberg News.

Media organizations will also be allowed on the floor. Everyone should always wear a mask when walking on the floor.

One issue not addressed is whether employees or other attendees will still be required to sign a liability waiver that prevents them from suing the NYSE in the event of a COVID contract.
