BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Jacques Cabaret, a gay bar that has nightly performances, will now require guests to show proof of their vaccination against COVID-19 or wear a mask to gain entry.
“Due to the recent uptick in the delta variant we have decided that for the safety of our cast, employees and audience we will be requiring proof of vaccination to be maskless at show all shows starting August 6th,” the bar posted to Facebook. “If you would like to be maskless at shows we are asking that you show your vaccination card at the door to receive a stamp (a clear photo on your phone will also suffice).”
People who do not have proof of their vaccination will be required to wear a mask the whole time they are inside.
“As leaders in this community, we feel that it is our responsibility to keep our spaces as safe as possible for all patrons, performers and staff,” the bar stated in their post. “Please help us to accomplish this goal and keep Jacques open and providing entertainment.”
Massachusetts health officials believe the rise in positive COVID-19 cases is most likely caused by the highly contagious Delta variant.
