YDHR Updated on COVID-19

For Our Guests and Friends of the Railway

YDHR will require all passengers that are age 12 and over be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination and photo identification upon boarding the train if requested. As there is not a COVID-19 vaccination approved for those under 12 years of age, a vaccination will not be required for this age group, and they are not required to provide proof of a negative test to travel with us.

Individuals with a medical condition that does not permit a vaccination must provide an official medical certificate along with an identification card (with or without a photo). The medical certificate must meet the following criteria:

1. Clearly indicates the passenger’s full name
2. Specifies that the person has a medical condition (unrelated to COVID-19 or any other infectious illness) or a disability that prevents them from being vaccinated for COVID-19. For example: “First name, Last name, cannot be vaccinated due to medical or physical condition unrelated to COVID-19 or any other infectious condition.”
– The nature of the medical condition preventing you from wearing the mask does not have to be stated on the certificate and does not have to be disclosed
3. Has been dated and issued by a healthcare provider on official letterhead with provider’s full name, license number, and phone number.

Individuals who cannot be vaccinated and meet the aforementioned requirements will be permitted to board the train with a valid antigen COVID-19 test administered at a clinic. Rapid COVID-19 tests will NOT be available onsite. Children ages 2 to 12 years of age are not required to provide a negative test.
