The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority says that 45% of its employees are fully vaccinated – and, in some departments, as many as 79% have received their shots.
Going forward, the transportation service will require:
- Proof of vaccination
- A negative COVID-19 test result that is no more than a week old
- A request for medical or religious accommodation
A number of services in the D.C. area currently require vaccinations – and many venues say they’ll require proof of vaccination from attendees.
On Monday, the District announced that all healthcare workers must be vaccinated.
