Liberty Science Center announces vaccine mandate

The Liberty Science Center announced that it will require visitors to show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 to enter the center beginning September 8.

Visitors 12 and older must show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and a valid photo identification. The center will continue to require guests and staff to wear face masks.

“As a science institution, we are committed to following public health guidance that strongly indicates vaccinations and face masks are the most effective way to protect ourselves and our community—especially those too young to be vaccinated—from the rampant spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19,” said President and CEO Paul Hoffman in a press release.

The Liberty Science Center will accept the following for entry:

  • An original CDC vaccination card
  • Personal digital COVID-19 vaccination record issued by New Jersey or a visitor’s home state
  • An official immunization record from outside the US
  • Photo of a COVID-19 vaccination record that matches the visitor’s ID

The Center announced last week that all staff have been vaccinated. The center has been open since last September after closing in March 2020 because of the pandemic.
