California To Require Vaccination Proof, Negative COVID Test For All Large Indoor Events

Self-attestations will no longer be allowed for indoor events of 1,000 or more beginning September 20th

The California Department of Health (CDPH) announced on Wednesday that a proof of vaccination or recent COVID-19 test would be required for indoor gatherings with 1,000 or more people beginning next month.

According to the new requirements, self-attestation will no longer be accepted as a way to enter events. Only proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the last 72 hours will be accepted for large indoor events with 1,000 people or more such as concerts, sporting events, or festivals. Large indoor events, defined by the CDPH as having over 10,000 people in attendance, did not receive a similar requirement but were recommended to not not use self-attestation of being vaccinated.

Masking still largely depends on the area, such as Los Angeles recently announcing that large outdoor events will require masks once again. Social distancing measures and capacity restrictions were also not brought back on Wednesday, although they are still being listed in case of any drastic changes.

The new vaccination/testing requirement is scheduled to go into effect beginning September 20th and will remain in place until at least November 1st. In their order, the CDPH named the rise of the delta variant outbreak and increasing COVID-19 cases in California as the main reason for the new indoor event mandate.

“California has made great strides in vaccinating its residents, with more than 75 percent of those eligible at least partially vaccinated,” said the CDPH in their order on Wednesday. “Although vaccinations provide a powerful protection against COVID-19 hospitalization and death, the Delta variant, which is currently the most common strain of COVID-19 in California, is highly transmissible and may cause more severe illness.  Given the rapid spread of the highly transmissible Delta variant, additional precautionary measures must be taken in large, indoor events, which have the potential to cause large, substantial, and severe outbreaks.”

“Indoor settings are especially high risk for transmission. While universal masking reduces the spread of infectious droplets and aerosols, masks are often removed for eating and drinking. Activities like singing, yelling, or cheering increase transmission risk, even when masks are being worn.

“The requirements and recommendations for negative testing / vaccine verification will be in place effective September 20, 2021 through November 1, 2021. The state will assess conditions by October 15, 2021, to determine whether updated requirements or recommendations are needed beyond November 1, 2021.”

CDPH head Dr. Tomas Aragon added in a statement that “The Delta variant has proven to be highly transmissible, making it easier to spread in large crowds where people are near each other for long periods of time. By requiring individuals to be vaccinated, or test negative for COVID-19 at large events, we are decreasing the risk of infection, hospitalization and death.”

Self-attestation restrictions

However, many called out the CDPH on Wednesday, noting that the added restriction of self-attestation would only lead to longer delays in checking, especially since around 75% of the state has either been fully or partially vaccinated so far.

“With masks in place and vaccinations being this high, it doesn’t make sense to hurt large businesses this way,” Modesto event planner Ginger Tran said to the Globe on Wednesday. “A lot of upcoming events, like larger sports viewing with the baseball playoffs and football season coming up, celebrations like Octoberfest, and larger church events usually held during the fall will need to put this in place due to the 1,000 people threshold. A lot of these events can’t afford to turn people away, especially on missing out last year. But now they are. Without self-attestation, a lot of people are going to be turned away. At least 25%, but probably a lot more due to people forgetting proof or not being believed on religious or medical exemptions.”

“It’s gotten really ugly with newer restrictions and mandates. Look at how many fights happened on airplanes alone this year. These restrictions will just further this along. They are literally following the policy of San Francisco, and it’s already hurting them there, as well as in New York. Now a lot of us are afraid it’s going to hurt the entire state. Again.”

Any extension of the new mandate will be decided on sometime in mid-October.

  1. PURE fearmongering… do a DuckDuckGo search for LewRockwell dot com and look at all of the reports of the adverse side-effects from these shot-clots, including deaths, anaphylaxis, Bell’s Palsy, convulsions and sudden deaths from heart attacks & strokes from clots that break free…

    Those that take these are basically signing their rights (and lives) away to be part of a clinical trial… these are not like normal vaccinations or flu shots – these are gene-modification therapies with an unproven mechanism of action in humans…

    The side-effect risk is to me, much greater than the risk from the CCP flu – especially when HCQ and Ivermectin have been proven to work well in India, where this “delta” variant (supposedly) was raging and was tamped down just as fast as it flared, due to their ability to use proven, safe, OFF-PATENT medications…

    Either this is the biggest medical interlocking directorate (at best) or a dystopian “herd-thinning” WEF/Agenda 2030 genocide activity and subject to Nuremberg 2.0 trials… something tells me that the dystopian alternative is the most likely, given the intensity of the relentless propaganda push to get everyone their clot-shot, before the adverse effects start bubbling up above the mainstream media blackout on reporting them….

    Dark times indeed….

    1. @CD9,… Jeesh, talk about “fearmongering” 😲

      At this point, over 4.85 Billion Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered (bloomberg.com, ourworldindata.org) over 9 months. If vaxxed people had any significant problems, don’t you think that would have been widely reported by now, and not just in “alternative” sources like Lew Rockwell…?

      1. And under the theory of proportionality, the RISK associated with taking the clot-shot is much greater than dealing with the flu, for the majority of people…
        Based upon the reports from Dr. Malone & Dr. Mercola, the long-term risks from the fake spike-protein mechanism of action in the clot-shots are far greater than the risk from the virus/flu…
        FURTHERMORE, THE COMPLETE blackout on natural immunity and any mention of antibody testing and vaccine exemption tells me that a nefarious purpose is driving the propaganda

  2. No, I don’t… The main media sources have not reported anything, other than the constant drone of get your clot-shot, get your clot-shot, get your clot-shot…
    That the MSM has gone along with the complete shutdown on reporting the success that India had with “delta variant” via Ivermectin treatment tells me that they are complicit in this cover-up and this all IS NOT about public health…

  3. I am sad to say that posts on my local Nextdoor social media site are in favor of mandated lockdowns, masks and vaccinations. At least in my neighborhood this tyrannical government and our draconian governor has succeeded in instilling the fear they wanted to remain in power. I pray that most other neighborhoods have people who see the fabrications of the democrat party and start voting to take back our right to make our own personal decisions.
