Kenmore Community Club renters will need to verify vax status

Starting Oct. 25, a new King County health order went into effect across the county requiring people ages 12 and older to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR test result to enter certain indoor and outdoor events and establishments. Venues included are: restaurants, bars, gyms, theaters and other indoor and some outdoor gatherings spaces.

The Kenmore Community Club appears to be covered by the requirement and is working with renters to develop a system for complying for events being held at the club's community hall. The club's rental manager Angela La Tourette is working with renters to ensure verification of vax or test status all who attend events. Under the terms of the rental agreement renters are required to take responsibility for doing such checks of vaccination or test status.

There are several ways people can easily produce verification. People can use their vaccine cards or a photo of a vaccine card, documentation from a medical record or vaccine provider, as proof of vaccination or current Covid-19 test. You can also obtain a printed certificate from Once on the site you can save a PDF of your certification of vaccination on your phone, which will serve as verification.

If you take a photo of your CDC vaccine card you can add it to Notes on iPhone or OneNote, Evernote or Google Keep on Android phones to make it easy to find.

Using one of several apps that will create a vax passport for you, you can add your vax record to your phone's wallet. One such app is VaxYes at

The countywide order is temporary and will be reviewed in six months to see if it’s still necessary.

Editor's note: Kenmore Community Club is not endorsing the VaxYes application, it is strictly offering a link to the company's site as a community resource.
