Building Access Update
COVID-19 Access and Procedures
Given the upcoming summer and low COVID-19 community levels in Albany, effective Tuesday, July 5, 2022, visitors will no longer be required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test or vaccination to enter the Capitol and Legislative Office Building.

This change was made in consultation with the New York State Legislature and the New York State Department of Health. Capitol access will be open on State Street, Washington Avenue, and the Empire State Plaza concourse. Visitors are required to pass through metal detectors and have bags scanned through an x-ray machine.
