Proof Of COVID-19 Vaccination Or Negative Test Within 72 Hours Now Required To Enter Restaurants, Bars, Entertainment Venues, Gyms In Contra Costa County

September 14, 2021 13:20 pm · 222 comments

Contra Costa County issued a countywide health order today that will now require you to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering a restaurant, gym and other indoor businesses.

The new order is effective September 22.

The new order applies to businesses where people remove face coverings to eat or drink indoors, such as restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, and to gyms and other indoor fitness facilities, including yoga and dance studios, where patrons breathe more heavily due to exercise.

The order also includes a requirement for workers in indoor areas of these businesses to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 by November 1 or test weekly for COVID-19.

To show proof of vaccination, patrons must show photo ID and their vaccination record cards from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), or copies or pictures of their cards. Documentation from healthcare providers will also be accepted, as will digital COVID-19 vaccine records issued by the State of California.

Good.
95.9% of the Covid deaths in this County have been from the unvaccinated.

No, Law & Order, there is nothing good about this. Absolutely nothing!

Ricardoh September 14, 2021 at 1:38 PM

Sounds like you or the county don’t trust vaccinations. Maybe you worry an unvaccinated will infect another unvaccinated.

Lawless Order September 14, 2021 at 1:45 PM

You’re right, they might die so screw them.

Freeman September 14, 2021 at 1:46 PM

Since Jan 1st when nobody was vaccinated. What do you guess the number is for the month of August only?

Annoyed September 14, 2021 at 2:35 PM

@Freeman – Would be nice if the County released the numbers like you said. Doing some basic math based on what that number was a couple months ago, about 20 of the 83 deaths in July and August were vaccinated individuals.

Pat September 14, 2021 at 3:51 PM

Not the sharpest tool in the shed now are ya 😉

Janus September 14, 2021 at 4:16 PM

Well I see absolutely no reason why identification should not be required for voting.

If I have to produce ID from something as mundane as going to the gym I should be able to produce it for something as important as voting.

In fact, why not a National Identification Card so all of our movements can be tracked for public safety sake? How will be know if someone from a high Covid infected county or state come into Contra Costa County without active movement tracking?

I’m sure Law and Order that since you are soooo concerned for health of adults that you must equally concerned for the health of unborn children.

Since vaccines are apparently not affective since we have documented vaccine failures with breakthrough cases, I don’t think restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, gyms In Contra Costa County should accept anything but a negative covid-19 test for entry. I mean we must be safe right Law and Order? It shouldn’t be a big deal? Right?

Captain Bebops September 14, 2021 at 4:24 PM

&Law & Order, perhaps because most of those deaths occurred before the vaccine was even available. BTW, I would bet many were exposed and got the virus over the last year and it didn’t do anything or enough to go in for testing. And if that were the case then they may have herd immunity and no vaccine required.

SA September 14, 2021 at 4:48 PM

Law and Order,
I can see a Covid virus hovering next to you, trying to put its giant spike in your mouth. I hope you get ALL the booster shots in the world. It will not be nuclear weapons that will wipe out humanity after all, but cowardly, pathetic degenerates that will happily hop to their own slaughter.

Kylie M September 14, 2021 at 4:45 PM

@Cyn – that’s a wild thing to say, right? You’re trying to compare putting private information on a never-deleted internet for all to see versus a person’s name and what type/date/location of the vaccine they took being showed to one single person at a restaurant or other location.

You’re trying too hard to make a point that doesn’t exist. Maybe dial it back and try again?

tony September 14, 2021 at 4:59 PM

@ Kylie

You do realize that fake cards will be next. Then they’ll “miraculously” have a solution for that with a digital vaccine verification system. Which already has been in development and ready to be rolled out. Next thing will be city infrastructure to ensure ‘public health’ and include updates to cameras to measure social distancing. City of Walnut Creek police was already training their drones and robotics. Look around the world. Some cities and countries are already using AI based robotics to remind people of social distancing in public spaces. Your ignorance is gonna be our demise if we don’t hold the line and stop this nonsense.

Do you think a 30% drop in customer base for restaurants is that big of a deal? Have you driven through our cities? Restaurants are boarded up throughout!

So you think I’m trying too hard to make a point that doesn’t exist? Like the one you just made about putting private information on a never-deleted internet? Well, what do you think your medical records are? They surely couldn’t be private information now, could they? Private medical records looked at by only one single person, according to you. That must be a neat trick….you know…..how that one single person can work at all the bars/restaurants/gyms. Maybe dial it back, you say? Are you kidding me? Maybe you should wake up.

Oh you guys .. you’re too funny! I didn’t know you traveled anywhere without your state-appointed IDs (driver’s license/state ID card). If you don’t have those on you, there are repercussions like being denied entry into a club, a bar, having an alcoholic drink or even, gasp, driving your car legally. How are THOSE “rights” treatin’ ya?

(sidenote – your legal rights don’t include being allowed to drink alcohol, go to a club or eat at a restaurant – but we’ll ignore that teeny tiny fact and continue on, right?)

Society will crumble if you don’t have your vaccination card on you – or even a picture of it on your phone (as outlined already). You don’t carry your phone with you when you go out .. AND you don’t carry your state ID?

I guess we’re just glancing over basic facts here, aren’t we. A slight bit dramatic I’d say. *shrug*

Wage Slave September 14, 2021 at 5:58 PM

Kylie,

All of those procedures were passed by legislatures, debated in public, and signed into law. This was all pulled out of the *ss of unelected health officers. Just like the CDC somehow discovered the power to stop landlords from evicting deadbeat tenants, despite being blatantly unconstitutional.

People I’ve never seen, met, and have no choice in, have created a barrier to participating in previously mundane rights without so much as a public comment period. That is facistic, and you are a boot licker if you approve of it.

Anonymous September 14, 2021 at 1:42 PM

@Fingerjelly. Nailed it. The vax cards aren’t carefully made to be forgery resistant, and the poor fast food workers aren’t cops trained in spotting forgeries. I have a card, can barely remember what it looks like. The level of scrutiny given to these cards will be about the same as MPs checking IDs before letting people drive delivery trucks onto military bases pre-911, but curiously, also post-Oklahoma City. Meaning, wave your ID or free sandwich card or Costco card like you know what you’re doing, and they’ll wave you in like THEY know what they’re doing. It was the little dance we did. Was I not supposed to say that? I think enough time has passed. 911 changed everything. Military security used to be an oxymoron.

You’re terribly mistaken about what PCR means or is.
Kary Mullis invented the process. And he died in August 2019 long before Covid began to spread in December 2019.

PCR is a PROCESS.
Not a test.

PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a process in which bits of genetic information are AMPLIFIED.

The lab doing the testing for SARS-CoV-2 adds a very specific substance to the sample, and if the sample contains SARS-CoV-2, this substance triggers a chain reaction that creates ENOUGH COPIES of the genetic material so that it can be detected through analysis!

Mitchoffsmask September 14, 2021 at 3:10 PM

This comment is mostly to fed up. Since you have or had family living under Nazi reign, you would know, and I think it’s obvious anyway, that it did not start with the death camps. It started with very mild measures against Jewish people. Almost inconveniences. By the end, the nazi’s had 90% support from the German people. What I find incredibly offensive is someone who had family during that period, could possibly support anything like this at all. The vaccine card is a very similar thing as the yellow star. And you’re right, currently, it would be offensive to say this is like the Holocaust. But if there was something like the Holocaust back then to compare the small restrictions to put on the Jews, I would imagine people would have said they’re crazy. That won’t happen here/again.

Lastly, have you considered this simple question: what if you’re wrong? I have and do all the time.

Individuals still have the freedom to choose between vax or no vax, understanding and accepting with maturity that either choice will have its own consequences.

Jeff September 14, 2021 at 3:54 PM

Your vax doesn’t reduce the rate of transmission nor infection, is in clinical trials per the manufacturer until 2023, with NO LIABILITY from the manufacturer and effectively none from the government, and has a growing list of serious adverse events that weren’t even initially known until people started getting hurt by it. Coercion of medical experimentation is unlawful per CA law 24170, 24171, 24172 (j), and federal laws.

I can’t wait until the order is updated to mandate booster shots or to only count mRNA vaccines, making my J&J shot worthless. This will cause more small businesses to close down permanently.

John Doe September 14, 2021 at 2:22 PM

Regardless of which side you are on as far as vaccine safety and effectiveness, this isn’t something that is a good thing. These are some reasons that I thought of off the top of my head

Business:
The small businesses don’t have the capital to withstand a loss of 25% of their patrons (going off the number of 75% vaccinated individuals; excluding the possibility.. which will likely happen, that fake cards will be used). This allows for the larger businesses to gain a greater hold on the area through an economic natural selection (in a way).

COVID;
This may lead to a riot or protests, which, if you believe in COVID, would lead to a resurgence possibly. It will also slow down the daily life and goings on in the area. If you don’t believe in covid, then this section won’t really matter but still worth mentioning.

MENTAL HEALTH;
I for one can attest to the toll this isolation has had on my own mental state. I am not trying to make an emotional appeal here, just mentioning it for firsthand credibility. This will cause more disparity among indiviudals and likely bring about serious depression or at least some anxiety brought upon by having to worry about if you left your card at home, or if you are unvaccinated, you are now isolated and YOUR BODY ISNT YOUR CHOICE ANYMORE.

POLITICAL;
I don’t want to beat a dead horse by mentioning how this is a slipper slope (which I know is a fallacy), but I think it is worth mentioning that this allows for easier record keeping of where you are, and now that this has happened, we will see potential use of it down the line when it comes to justifying other more invasive, unforseen government acts. Just as we often reference historical events, this could be used in a similar fashion to justify a hypothetical action down the road.

SECURITY;
Whoever is checking people for these cards will not have access to your DL# and other things on your License. This would be totally unlikely, but it could happen that someone steals this info cause they are sick of their job and want to make some money on the side…

You forgot one more – REAL ESTATE

This is just one more item on the long list of things that make California toxic. If Gavin survives the recall election and the draconian BS continues, the exodus California has seen so far will be nothing compared to what it will be.

People who have not taken the jab by now will never be taking it. If you can’t go out to restaurants or the public places without being vaccinated it isn’t worth living there. Add to that so many people getting fired for not taking the jab in healthcare and in other industries, once you lose your job there’s A huge window of opportunity to move out of the state.

I love how Gavin said don’t make California like Texas. I guess he doesn’t know that people like Texas better than California now which is why they’re moving there. Incredible

So minorities would be discriminated against if we require voter ID, but it’s ok to require photo ID and proof of vaccination? How will minorities ever get over that hurdle? Per the ACLU, “Minority voters disproportionately lack ID. Nationally, up to 25% of African-American citizens of voting age lack government-issued photo ID, compared to only 8% of whites.”

Seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Also, what about USPS workers who are exempt from the vaccination mandate? Are they also exempt from this requirement?

This is asinine, but then the Dems are in charge, so there you go.

How do we eject all those involved in this illegal, unconstitutional, blatant attack on US citizens? Mandatory medical procedures (with full knowledge that mutations will render the false “vaccine benefits” useless in less than a year–before the test trial period is over) for something less dangerous than the flu. How do we go about educating people against the fear tactics employed to make this appear to be a pandemic? Everyone with any authority that either supports or initiated this farcical tyranny needs to be immediately removed from their position, and, in fairness, should also be facing jail sentences.

1) vaccine mandates are NOT new in the U.S. and they have gone to the supreme court where we have establish precedent that they are in fact constitutional

2) not less dangerous than the flu

3) the whole point of the mandate is to get to herd immunity to prevent the mutations from happening so we can finally get out of this nightmare. if everyone just did the right thing and got vaccinated we wouldn’t be in this mess to begin with

BORbeliever September 14, 2021 at 7:34 PM

@Law & Order,

Wrong.

Per CNN…

“t’s true that Pfizer, unlike some other pharmaceutical companies, did not accept federal money for research into a coronavirus vaccine. Pfizer, unlike these competitors, is not getting payments up front even before proving its effort has been successful.

However, the Trump administration agreed in July to buy at least $1.95 billion worth of a Pfizer vaccine, at least 100 million doses, if Pfizer does get a vaccine authorized by the Food and Drug Administration.

Three experts told CNN that this purchase promise may have played an important role in expediting Pfizer’s vaccine development process. So after Pfizer’s initial claim to the New York Times that it has never been part of Operation Warp Speed, CNN asked the company if there was any more nuance to the situation.

In response, Pfizer spokesperson Sharon Castillo provided a statement that said the company is indeed part of Operation Warp Speed.

I guess I would like to know if the people I am working with have things like AIDS, Herpes, HPV or any litany of others that may cause me harm. “IT IS NOT MY BUSINESS TO KNOW YOUR LIFE” I am protected so it does not matter to me if they are vaccinated or not (of course some exceptions AIDS….bla-bla-bla..). This is what vaccines are for. Do not be afraid for others, pay attention to your own life. You do not own someone else as you do not want someone to own you. This is overreach (Law and order will chime in here). I would recommend “of course only my opinion” if an establishment refuses or even asked for your personal information politely let them know that you will not do business with them as it is none of their business of your personal information. I know this will cause some hardship and may strain some relationships but this will push back against the order and then we will see who is for the people (by the people) and who is the tyrant that needs to be scrutinized.

Schools 100% request those documents. My mom works at an elementary school as a health clerk and that is huge part of her job. They absolutely do require it and they require you to present proof.

Sexually transmitted diseases are not even remotely the same as respiratory disease that you can give to anyone you interact with. And actually it is illegal if you know you have a sexual disease and do not disclose that to your sexual partner.

And from the perspective of a public health official they have to look at the community as a whole. The entire point of vaccination is to reach community level herd immunity, which prevents rapid viral evolution (i.e. variants), prevents health care from overloading, and protects vaccinated immunocompromised people, etc. etc. If we dont approach this from the community level we’re never going to escape this mess. At least not without a LOT of death and suffering.

Also, usually when people go out to eat, it’s not planned.
They’re driving and get hungry while being out, they’re tired from work, or they’re traveling and need something to eat.
Taking a COVID-19 test would have to occur weekly in order to prepare for going to these places.

What about if you’re dining outside?
Do you still need to show a vaccine card or negative COVID-19 test?
It doesn’t get cold here so worst case scenario, I’ll choose restaurants with outdoor dining.
Once it starts cooling off from this wretched heat, it’ll be fine eating outside.

Commiefornia will sink.
CA is done.

Patriots, we gotta let it sink and leave this hell hole.

Yes, I’m wondering about this as well. There are a few restaurants which we enjoy and would like to continue giving them business. It’s not their fault these restrictions.

If we’re asked to eat indoors, then I can see them asking for proof of vaccination. What happens if we chose to eat outdoors? Would we need to disclose vaccination status as well? I would think no, as the restrictions imply “indoor” venues.

I suppose we just take the order to-go.

@CountryGal, No, you do not need to show prod of vaccination or a negative test if you are eating outside. Nor do you need to show proof to go inside to get your take out order.

We seem to have a few “agent provocateurs” trying to stir things up. Ignore them, they just want division and worse mandates to come. They’re a bit obvious aren’t they? 🙂

Looking at Covid tests site…

Test results can take three days

Therefore nullifying the 72-hour test mandates.

Actually antegen tests have been developed that only take 10 minutes and cost around $1. Problem is they aren’t the “blessed” PCR test which authoritarian government loves in an effort to control everyone.

Why don’t you simply read the CCC health order? it clearly states?

“COVID-19 Test. “COVID-19 Test” means a nucleic acid or antigen test to detect infection of a person with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.”

You will NOT need a PCR test and takes about 30 minutes for the result of an antigen test. I have been travelling internationally and the same tests are required to re-enter the US.

How much tyranny are we going to put up with before we all fight back we never should have gone along with the mask mandates or the lockdowns every time you give a little bit of your freedom away you will never get it back and they will continue to take more and more it’s time to stand up and fight back I say no! This is America we have constitutional rights

THIS IS NOT SAFE FOR A MULTITUDE OF REASONS.
Not all individuals working at restaurants, gyms, … are trustworthy. If you are an woman or male (attractive or not), you must show your lic with your name and address. How many people will be exposing their self to the possibility of rape, identity theft, or worse? As an individual who knows of a woman who was stalked and worse, this action is inherently unsafe. And yes, sometimes one is asked to show id at a bar, but that is generally infrequent and a choice – this is not. I personally know of mechanic that have harassed a woman I know and has made her feel unsafe by his unsolicited advances. And yes sometimes we are required to show id, but generally the individuals who view this info are better screened. The more times you show your id with name and address, the greater the risk. It is why they tell you to protect your information. THIS IS UNSAFE.

To pessimisticallyoptimistic
Yes I do understand STD’s are not the end of the world but if you have known anyone that has had aids then you you might change your tune. Pneumonia is how most of these die as with Chemo. Immune suppressed people according to these requirements should be allowed to be aware of anything that could possibly affect them. If you actually look at the law the violation for giving you AIDS has been discounted to a minor crime (misdemeanor) so this is a disease that has killed around 690,000 people and the survivors are subject to conditions That are difficult. On the other hand small pox and TB are not controlled for people not born here. I guess the second hand info from your mom is compelling but the action is the same. I do not want to receive any affliction from others but as I said I protect myself and others should “no matter how”. I do not believe you are informed outside the news on these topics. You should research sites like Johns Hopkins and do the math on this (there are more sites to visit) https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html. Of course you can always find a website to satisfy your fear level.

I have natural immunity from prior infection, which the flood of data coming out—THE SCIENCE—shows natural immunity is stronger and lasts longer than your leaky “vaccine”…so tell me again why I need this rushed gene therapy injected into my body.

I’m good with this. People, get used to either getting vaccinated or tested regularly. Don’t wanna? Order take-out. Next.

If that’s the case, I will not buy a single item or service in the county, and will go out of my way to counties that don’t mandate such foolishness. Won’t support the county with my money purchasing goods and services. Will support counties that do not mandate vaccines and testing.

Today it is Covid what will be next?

This is definitely a step toward digital health passes or as China likes to call it a “social credit” system. This “show compliance” technology is being implemented world wide.

At the bottom of the https://www.coronavirus.cchealth.org/vaccine-proof there is a offer for free scanner under Tools for Businesses:
Free tool for scanning vaccination QR codes: SMART® Health Card Verifier App

Follow that rabbit hole and it brings you to the US Advisory Council (after the world wide council members) among health care reps there are many Pharma companies, drugstore reps etc…

It’s beginning to look a lot like ..
