As of January 15, 2022, the City of Washington DC will require proof of vaccination (1 dose by January 15, 2022 and 2 doses by February 15, 2022) for most indoor venues for members of the public over the age of 12. This applies to restaurants, hotel meeting/banquet/conference rooms, sporting and music events and other indoor places of business/entertainment.

Acceptable proofs of vaccination include: Original CDC vaccination card (or a photo/digital copy), record of vaccination from health provider/public health authority, a COVID-19 verification app (such as Clear, VaxYes, Excelsior, MyIR) or a World Health Organization vaccination record.

Everyone over the age of 18 will need to show a valid ID along with proof of vaccination.

A negative COVID-19 test is not an accepted substitute at this time.

Additionally, there is an indoor mask requirement in Washington, DC.

At this time we do not know how long the vaccine and mask order will be in effect but we want to provide full transparency to our lodges and members.

If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact Cecile Conroy at or Hannah Samuel at
