New York Covid-19 Policy Updates

New York Gravity Vault COVID-19 Updates 


Masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals. 

The CDC defines an individual as fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose of a 2-dose series, such as the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine.

Masks are recommended for non-vaccinated individuals.

Masks will still be required for;

  • Our staff while in public areas of the facility until further notice.
  • Our week-long, Camp Rocks summer camp participants.

Social distancing is still required 

While occupancy restrictions have been removed, social distancing is still required in the facility. Please continue to leave at least one empty rope station between yourself and a neighboring climber and leave at least six feet between yourself and other boulderers.


Please continue to use the provided sanitization stations. They will remain for general use and we encourage frequent sanitization.


The water fountain is still closed.


As mentioned in our previous newsletter, Vertical Life reservations are no longer required for Members and Day Passers.


As with any decision, we recognize that we may not be able to please everyone and that there are many other factors involved in a personal assessment of risk mitigation. Our goal is to remain consistent and to continue to follow the science, State, and CDC guidelines.
We encourage anyone who has questions to give us a call or drop us a note and we'll be happy to help.
