New Verification Requirements for Events and Certain Public Settings

The State of California now requires that all attendees at indoor mega events show proof of full vaccination or a negative test result prior to entry. Self-attestation can no longer be used to verify an attendee's status as fully vaccinated or as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result.

Indoor mega events are events with 1,000 or more attendees indoors, and include conventions, conferences, expos, concerts, shows, nightclubs, sporting events, live entertainment, and festivals.

Acceptable proof of vaccination status includes a photo identification with any one of the following:
- CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card (white card)
- World Health Organization (WHO) vaccine record card (yellow card)
- California Department of Public Health (CDPH) COVID-19 digital vaccination record
- Other COVID-19 digital vaccination record issued by an approved company
- Documentation of vaccination from the healthcare provider or entity that provided the COVID-19 vaccines
- California Immunization Registry (CAIR2) vaccination record

The vaccination proof should include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 vaccine, and the date of the doses administered. The person can show the vaccination card, a photo of the card as a separate document, or a photo of the card stored on a phone or electronic device.

Acceptable proof of a negative test includes a photo identification with testing results that must include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 viral test performed, and negative test result. The date when the COVID-19 test was taken must be within the 72 hours prior to the event. The test results can be a printed copy or on a phone, including an email or text message results from the test provider or laboratory.

Masks continue to be required for everyone entering indoor public places in L.A. County and the City of Long Beach, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are also now required regardless of vaccination status at large outdoor events with 10,000 or more guests. Masks may only be removed when actively eating or drinking.
