In a tweet posted online Tuesday by production company I.M.P -- The Anthem, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Lincoln Theatre and the 9:30 Club – said that starting Sunday, August 15, all patrons attending events will be required to show proof of full vaccination before entering. If not vaccinated, patrons will need to show negative test results from the past 72 hours and matching photo ID.

The group said proof of vaccination can be a physical vaccine card or a photo of your card.

The city has also restored an indoor mask order – regardless of your vaccination status.

The measures come amid soaring COVID-19 cases nationwide.

According to new CDC guidelines, D.C. has a "substantial" risk of transmission.

The resurgence, which has been accelerated by the much more contagious delta variant, is primarily among the unvaccinated.
