D.C. lifts vaccine verification requirement

February 15, 2022

Attendees at the 2022 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) no longer need to verify their vaccine status to attend the annual advocacy event, held Feb. 27-March 3, after Washington, D.C., officials lifted the vaccine verification requirement to enter indoor venues. Additionally, the indoor mask requirement will expire on Monday, Feb. 28. 

“We’re pleased that COVID-19 numbers are moving in the right direction in Washington, D.C.,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “This does not change our commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable event for all attendees, and we will continue to work with the staff at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to adhere to the latest safety recommendations.”

Although the city-wide requirement has been lifted, businesses may still adhere to mask guidelines or ask for proof of vaccine verification. The Walter E. Washington Convention Center will no longer require proof of vaccination; however, CUNA is awaiting further guidance on their mask guidelines after the city-wide requirement expires on February 28.
