Bars and Restaurants Require Proof of Covid 19 Vaccination

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week issued new mask guidelines due to the surge of Covid 19 cases. Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYC health officials on Monday said that they are strongly recommending mask-wearing indoors in public settings, regardless of vaccination status mainly if there’s a possibility of interacting with unvaccinated individuals.

The city has been doubling down on vaccination efforts despite the surge in Covid 19 cases. City workers have to be vaccinated or undergo weekly Covid 19 tests starting in September. Broadway theatregoers must present proof of vaccination in order to go to shows starting this week.

Many restaurants and bars are rolling out vaccine mandates. Many restaurants have been asking for proof of vaccination since NYC launched its mask mandate months ago. It started as a small group of outliers risking public backlash has quickly gained strength in numbers.There is a growing number of restaurants that have mandated vaccine requirements for diners, from high-end establishments like Le Bernardin to neighborhood favorites like Gertie and Yellow Rose. Eater has compiled a list of restaurants and bars across the city that are now requiring proof of vaccination from diners.

Some restaurants are only requiring proof of vaccination for indoor diners, some also accept recent negative Covid 19 tests, and others are requiring proof of vaccination and mask-wearing while not eating or drinking. With Covid 19 transmission rising across Washington state, dozens of Seattle bars, clubs, and restaurants are now requiring customers to provide proof of their vaccination status. That saw music venues like Neumos on Capitol Hill and SoDo’s Supernova, among others, announce new requirements.
