Washington, D.C. has imposed a vaccine requirement for indoor activities that will also apply to all K-12 students, including those who attend charter, private and parochial schools.

Effective January 15, the order requires that patrons aged twelve and over present proof of at least one dose to enter certain businesses including restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, indoor exercise and recreational establishments, indoor cultural and entertainment facilities, and indoor event and meeting establishments. By February 15, people aged twelve and up must be fully vaccinated to enter these businesses.

Washington, D.C. is the third major city this week, after Boston and Chicago, to institute a customer vaccine mandate. “Businesses must display a notice informing patrons that proof of vaccination is required to enter any indoor portion of a covered location,” the order states.
