Posted on 01/12/22 | News Source: WBAL

The National Aquarium is the latest Baltimore attraction that will require proof of vaccination for entry starting in late January.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, the National Aquarium will require all guests 12 and older to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination upon entry. The new policy takes effect on Jan. 25 and is the latest addition to the aquarium’s ongoing commitment to protecting our guests, staff, volunteers and animals.

Upon entry to the aquarium, guests will be asked to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. Full vaccination means guests have received a full dosage of an approved vaccine at least 14 days prior to the date of scheduled visitation to the aquarium.

The following are acceptable proofs of vaccination:

- The original, copy or digital photo of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination card or similar document from another state, local or foreign government that clearly indicates the full administration of an approved COVID-19 vaccine

- Printed record from a vaccine provider

- Digital record of vaccination from one of the following apps: Clear App, MyIR Mobile, Excelsior Pass, a stored electronic record in your mobile phone wallet

A matching photo ID will also be required for guests ages 18 years and older. Photo ID must be an official document bearing the name of the individual and a photograph. Acceptable forms of identification include but are not limited to: driver’s license, non-driver government ID card, passport, and school ID card.

For guests with a medical or religious exemption, entry will be permitted with proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of their visit. Acceptable negative COVID-19 test results must include name, date, type of test and clear indication of a negative result for COVID-19; and come from lab-run polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or rapid antigen test. At-home test results will not be accepted.
