Seattle Pride Parade Health and Safety Update
Mar 07, 2022 | Seattle Pride
As we prepare for our first Pride Parade since 2019, Seattle Pride has a lot to consider for the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. As one of the largest Pride Parade’s in the country bringing together over 400,000 people, we want to ensure a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable experience for our LGBTQIA+ and allied community who will join us in the streets of Downtown Seattle for a much-anticipated celebration of queerness.
We have been in close communication with our public health leaders, namely Public Health - Seattle & King County, regarding permitting requirements to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. As Public Health has issued revised guidance in recent weeks, we have adjusted our parade contingent requirements to reflect the updated guidance.
Thank you to all our contingents who have been working to comply with our public health requirements. We hope the easing of these mandates make parade preparation easier in the long run.
Seattle Pride has made the following updates to registration requirements for Pride Parade contingents:
We no longer require masks to be worn during the parade.
We no longer require organizations to submit a roster of participants verifying vaccination status
Participants are still required to provide proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID test within 48 hours, to be checked by contingent leads. Each contingent must verify participant compliance and Seattle Pride will conduct spot-checks as well.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Noah, Seattle Pride’s Program Manager at Noah.Wagoner@SeattlePride.org.
Thank you for helping us ensure a safe and enjoyable return of our annual Seattle Pride Parade - we’re looking forward to this being the best Parade yet!
