As of October 25, a new health order will be implemented for all meetings, conferences, and conventions occurring in Seattle. It requires verification of full vaccination status or a negative test to enter indoor events regardless of size, outdoor public events of 500 or more people, and indoor entertainment and recreational establishments and events such as live music, performing arts, gyms, restaurants, and bars. It also provides an adequate level of flexibility to attendees, providing them an option to show proof of vaccine or proof of a negative COVID-19 test in the last 72 hours.
Washington State has reinstated a statewide mask mandate to all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. This includes all indoor public settings like grocery, retail, theaters, and entertainment establishments. This health order affects everyone five years of age and older in public indoor settings and at large, outdoor events with 500 or more attendees, including sporting events, fairs, parades, and concerts.
