DC Chamber of Commerce Supports VaxDC, a New City-Wide Vaccination Requirement for Certain Indoor Businesses

DC Chamber Believes COVID-Safety Protocols Can Help Stop the Spread of the COVID Virus So Businesses Can Continue to Bring Economic Vitality to the Region.

WASHINGTON D.C. (January 12, 2022) – The DC Chamber of Commerce supports the District of Columbia’s city-wide vaccination entry requirement (VaxDC), which calls for certain indoor establishments to verify that patrons are vaccinated against COVID-19. 

“The DC Chamber of Commerce supports Mayor Bowser’s recent city-wide order, VaxDC, which will require patrons of certain indoor establishments to show proof of vaccination,” said Angela Franco, President and CEO, DC Chamber of Commerce. “Our region’s economic vitality depends on our businesses, both small and large, to remain open. While we support these mitigation efforts, we understand the impact this mandate will have on our businesses already struggling from staffing shortages. We ask our community to be patient as our businesses accommodate this new mandate. We all share the common goal of returning to normalcy, where businesses can operate at full capacity.”

On January 15, 2022, per Mayor’s Order 2021-148, the District of Columbia will adopt a city-wide vaccination entry requirement that requires COVID-19 vaccination to enter indoor facilities within the city. To read the full VaxDC mandate, please visit https://coronavirus.dc.gov/vaxdc
