COVID-19 updates: Vaccination verification, mask mandates & vaccine locations

Vaccination Verification

The COVID-19 Delta variant continues to spread in King County. Surges of preventable cases and hospitalizations are stressing our regional healthcare system and heightening concerns about a significant resurgence this fall and winter. That’s why Public Health – Seattle & King County is implementing a vaccination verification policy across our region.  

Beginning October 25, across King County, people 12 years of age and older will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, a negative PCR COVID-19 test in the last 72 hours, or a negative rapid test result conducted on site in order to enter many events and establishments:

  • Outdoor events with 500 people or more. Examples include professional and collegiate sports and entertainment events.
  • Indoor recreational events or establishments regardless of size. Examples include professional and collegiate sports, performing arts and live music venues, movie theaters, museums, gyms, and conventions.
  • Restaurants and bars, including indoor dining. This does not apply to outdoor dining, take-out customers, and places that aren’t primarily used for indoor dining such as grocery stores. Small restaurants and bars, defined as those with seating capacity for less than 12 people, will phase in on December 6, 2021.  

Mask requirements

In Washington state, masks are required for everyone ages 5+ at outdoor events with 500 or more people, and continue to be required in public indoor spaces.

Getting vaccinated

The best protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant that is more than twice as contagious as the original virus continues to be vaccination. Vaccinations are available to everyone 12 and older regardless of insurance, citizenship, or immigration status. The City of Seattle is no longer offering COVID-19 vaccinations but there are plenty of places to get one. See below for some options.


If you need language interpretation, help finding a vaccination or testing site, or ADA accommodation, call the King County COVID-19 Call Center at (206) 477-3977, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, get a free test, with or without an appointment, regardless of immigration or insurance status.
