OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Starting Nov. 15, people in Washington state will need to either provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test in order to attend large events. The order announced Thursday by Gov. Jay Inslee applies to indoor events with 1,000 or more attendees and outdoor events that have more than 10,000 attendees. Events will be required to verify full vaccination status or a negative test within the last 72 hours for all attendees age 12 or older. The governor’s office said the requirement applies to ticketed or registered events like conventions, concerts, sporting events and fairs. Religious services or events that are held on K-12 school grounds are exempt from the order.

  1. So what are these “large events” organizers telling you ? That they know the vaccinated are carriers of the virus- but that they don’t really mind if you get “a little sick” ! This is the attitude that is causing the massive surge in new cases in Oregon- the attitude that has it trickling down to the elderly- infirm- and those with underlying conditions ! this is shockingly irresponsible as these folks continue to deny the science and point fingers- mostly at those with underlying conditions making up 98% of all sever cases and deaths… why is this is so hard to comprehend- the data is screaming “stop” !
