Spokane venues considering creation of vaccinated-only sections to increase capacities

UPDATED: Thu., May 6, 2021

Under the guidelines, which have different attendance caps for indoor and outdoor venues, the number of permitted visitors would be increased if a "vaccinated section" were created in the facility. Such a section would require proof of vaccination to enter, and the operator would have to set up different ticketing lines in order to permit those with proof of a vaccine and those without. In that section, social distancing would not be required, but attendees would still be required to wear masks unless actively eating or drinking.
