New Orleans, San Francisco to Require Vaccination Card or Negative Test for Indoor Venues

HeadlineAug 13, 2021

New Orleans and San Francisco said Thursday that all patrons to bars, restaurants, gyms and other indoor spaces will be required to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative coronavirus test. New York City is adopting a similar requirement next week.

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Indiana University may keep its requirement that students attending classes be vaccinated against COVID-19. Justice Amy Coney Barrett turned down a challenge to the requirement without comment and without referring it to the full court.
