Better dig up that vaccination card. In response to the continuing spread of the highly contagious Delta variant, Public Health—Seattle and King County officials announced yesterday that customers at King County restaurants, bars, theaters, and gyms will need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test to enter (and, sorry, your rapid test at home doesn’t count).

The order goes into effect on October 25, with an exemption for children younger than 12, who aren’t yet eligible for the jab. Mind you, these new rules don't apply to outdoor dining or takeout, and establishments that seat 12 or less have until December 6 to implement them, but it’s certainly welcome news to the vaccinated and pandemic-weary. In fact, dozens of Seattle-area restaurants, bars, and venues are already requiring proof of your vaccination status before entry. Here's a guide to the ones leading the charge—at least until October 25. (Did we miss a business? Tell us at [email protected])
