Morning Briefing: Proof of Vax, Kids’ Sports and Asian Hip-Hop

gHello the We are November 8th.

If you haven’t found the best way to keep your vax card with you, today is the day to make a decision. In accordance with the City of LA bylaw, indoor spaces including restaurants, gymnasiums, museums, beauty salons and recreation centers will begin to require proof vaccination to enter.

The decree is one of the strictest in the country and was adopted by the city council in early October.

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes:

  • a vaccination record issued by a healthcare provider,
  • a vaccination card issued by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
  • similar documentation from a foreign government agency for visitors from other countries,
  • a photocopy of a vaccination record,
  • a photo of this card stored on your phone, or
  • a digital COVID-19 vaccination record issued by the State of California or another state.
