This past Friday, The City of West Hollywood announced an emergency executive order that requires proof of full Covid-19 vaccination for clients and guests entering most indoor facilities.
The new rules will be implemented “as soon as possible but no later than October 11th,” said the city in a recent news release. The rules were brought to light as “the transmission rate of the Covid-19 Delta variant remains high in Los Angeles County and throughout the nation.”
“Covered Businesses” require all guests 18+ to show proof of full vaccination before entering any indoor facility, “subject only to certain exceptions.” These businesses include:
Those 18 and under are not asked to show proof of vaccination, and those who are 18+ and do not provide proof of vaccination are encouraged to use the outdoor divisions of the establishments listed above.
The statement also mentioned that these businesses must “use their best efforts” to vaccinate their staff and routine workers fully. By November 1st, all staff and workers of these establishments will be required to show proof of full vaccination before entering any indoor division of the facility.
This excludes staff who work on an intermittent or occasional basis. However, all city employees, temporary employees, interns, contract personnel, volunteers, and elected or selected officials who work in city facilities will be expected to get vaccinated by November 1st.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization describe “fully vaccinated” as two weeks after your second dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
Acceptable forms to prove full vaccination include:

Take a seat, grab a cannabis-infused drink, and stay awhile.
After one hour you will be in the 'Clear Zone' for up to 5 hours.
