Assessment: On Tuesday, Bowser tweeted a reminder of the upcoming requirements:
Remember that starting Saturday you will need these three things before heading out: 1. Proof of Vaccination (12 years +) 2. Proof of Vaccination and Photo ID (18 years +) 3. Mask For more information visit http://vaxdc.dc.gov.
The New American: Starting January 15, everyone older than 12 will need to present proof of receiving at least one dose of a COVID shot to enter numerous public venues in Washington, DC. Everyone older than 18 will also need to present a valid photo ID along with their vaccination card, likely to prevent fraud and make sure one is not using someone else’s card.

News on the policy introduced by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser comes as President Biden endorsed scrapping the Senate filibuster so that his party can force through legislation dubbed the “Freedom to Vote Act,” which would outlaw requirements “to submit any form of identifying document as a condition of obtaining or casting an absentee ballot” because voter ID is considered “racist.”
Requiring ID, however, does not seem to be racist when one tries to access a long list of indoor public places in the nation’s capital including food and drink establishments, cultural and entertainment establishments, exercise and recreational facilities, event and meeting establishments, and any other places as may be designated by the director of the D.C. Department of Health.
D.C. authorities prohibit businesses from accepting a negative COVID test to allow an unvaccinated person to enter an indoor venue unless that person “has a religious or medical exemption.” Unvaccinated individuals will have to provide “documentation of medical or religious exemptions from the COVID-19 vaccine” as well as a negative PCR or antigen test from within the previous 24 hours.
