Coldplay is set to open the newly christened Climate Pledge Arena, where Imagine Dragons will make a tour stop next year.

OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS

As of Tuesday, all attendees of outdoor gatherings of 500+ people will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, in King County. Governor Inslee followed suit on Thursday, announcing the same mask requirement will be in place statewide starting Monday, September 13.

A majority of Seattle venues are requiring proof of vaccination and King County has indicated that they will also be soon requiring such proof for nonessential businesses. Details for the new system are still being worked out, though a spokesperson for Public Health – Seattle & King County (PHSKC) said it would likely be put into place in mid-to-late October with more information to come over the next couple weeks.

This week also saw Seattle-area sports teams announce that they will be requiring fans who attend games to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours.
