Rep. Sosnowski statement on Chicago Cubs/White Sox policy for designated seating areas for fully vaccinated-only fans

State Representative Joe Sosnowski, R-Rockford, co-signed a letter to the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox organizations today along with seven other members of the Illinois House of Representatives requesting both ball clubs to reconsider their policy requiring fans to show COVID-19 vaccination credentials to attend certain fan sections of ballgames at Wrigley Field and Guaranteed Rate Field, respectively:

“I joined colleagues of mine to request that the Cubs and Sox organizations reconsider their proposed vaccination zones.  This proposal is essentially a vaccination passport that is absolutely unacceptable in any fashion. We understand businesses are frustrated with the “shutdown and restriction” policies that the Governor continues to advocate while most of the country has returned to normal, but we cannot allow exclusionary and discriminatory policies to be created.”
