CLEVELAND — The City Club of Cleveland announced Thursday it is joining a growing list of venues requiring guests to either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide proof of a negative coronavirus test. 

The organization said that the new pandemic protocols will go into effect Oct. 1. 

The City Club of Cleveland said details on how to provide proper documentation is forthcoming. 

“This is a big change, and one we do not take lightly,” Dan Moulthrop, CEO of the City Club of Cleveland, said. “But we make this change in the interests of the health of our community, the health of our colleagues, and the health of those we invite to speak from our stage. Our staff will be following the same guidelines.”

The City Club said it is following similar protocols being implemented at venues such as Playhouse Square.
