In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Mountain View and the MVCPA follow current county, state and federal health orders. In addition, MVCPA is allowing clients and production companies (Licensees) to enact requested stricter requirements for individual events, such as mask, vaccination or booster requirements.
If the event production company has requested this event be a "Mask Required Event," then masks are required for all individuals at this event, regardless of vaccination status.
If the event production company requires proof of vaccination at the MVCPA:
A person is “fully vaccinated” two weeks after completion of the initial series of a federal Food and Drug Administration-approved COVID-19 vaccine (usually one or two doses), including by way of an emergency use authorization.
Testing must be conducted within one day for an antigen test and within two days for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test prior to entry into an event. Results of the test must be available prior to entry into the facility or venue. Test results must be from a laboratory or healthcare or test provider or patient platform for the healthcare provider. Self-verified home tests will not be accepted at this time. Children under 2 years of age are exempt from the testing requirement, consistent with CDC guidance.
If the event production company has requested this event be a an Up-to-Date Vaccination Event:
“Up-to-Date” means that an individual is not only “fully vaccinated” but has also obtained any booster doses of a COVID-19 vaccination for which they are eligible as authorized by the federal Food and Drug Administration, within 15 days of first becoming eligible.
For example, as of the effective date of this Order, individuals aged 16 or older who received their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine more than six months ago are eligible for and must obtain a booster shot to be Up-to-Date, while individuals who received one dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine more than two months ago are eligible for and must obtain a booster shot to be Up-to-Date.
(revised for clarity)
Organizations may manually review a paper or digital copy of the patron’s COVID-19 Vaccine Record Card or use a SMART Health Card-compatible reader to confirm the information contained in the digital vaccine record, with the patron’s consent.
As part of that process, CDPH and CDC recommend that organizations adhere to the following standards and principles for COVID-19 vaccine verification:
