Vaccine verification protocol to enter WKCAC, effective Oct 25

Beginning October 25, people ages 12 and older will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to enter certain indoor and outdoor events and establishments in King County, including the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center.

Considering the Delta variant continues to spread in King County, this requirement will help to protect our visitors and employees. Thank you for helping us protect one another!
