Marble Bar in Detroit requires proof of vaccination
DETROIT (FOX 2) – The owner of Marble Bar in Detroit is taking its own approach to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
“It’s not an industry where social distancing is a reality,” said owner Raphael Blake.
Detroit’s Marble Bar requires proof of vaccine or a negative Covid test to get inside
The owner of Marble Bar in Detroit is taking a different approach to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Customers will soon have to prove that they have been vaccinated or tested negative for the coronavirus. – otherwise they will not be admitted. It’s a first-hand decision.
“We know some people who have tested positive for Covid,” he said.
And it’s a decision backed by its fully vaccinated staff.
“You (the staff) have to be in a crowded nightclub every night with people ordering drinks without masks,” Blake said. “You got a lot of attention.”
The announcement came over social media and, as expected, received a lot of opinion.
“We didn’t do this because of the controversy or the attention,” he said. “We’d rather not have it.”
“I would actually support them more than anyone else because I know that they take responsibility,” said one woman.
“I’m just saying you need a vaccine to take part. I don’t think that’s fair,” said one man.
“If you don’t break any law or regulation, you can do what you have to,” said one woman.
This new policy goes into effect on Friday. So the next time you plan to visit the Marble Bar in Detroit at the entrance, you’ll be asked to show ID – and something else.
“You will show your vaccination certificate or Covid test and the names must match,” Blake said.
The timeline is perpetual but the owner tells me that once they are comfortable relaxing the policy they will.
