A "Communicable Disease" as used herein is COVID-19, any strains, variants, or mutations thereof, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and/or any other communicable and/or infectious diseases, viruses, bacteria or illnesses or the causes thereof

Attendees who display any of these symptoms may be denied entry to the ballpark or, if already inside the ballpark, may be required to leave. Attendees must comply with instructions of ballpark personnel and health authorities, including any instructions to leave the ballpark or temporarily quarantine or isolate somewhere in the ballpark.

Seating Pod Integrity

To ensure appropriate social distancing is maintained, attendees must not sell, transfer or otherwise provide any of their event tickets to anyone other than family (or other trusted acquaintances) with whom they have been sheltering, unless they are selling, transferring or otherwise providing all such tickets (i.e., the complete pod of tickets purchased) to a single party.

Social Distancing

Capacity at the ballpark will be limited to maintain social distancing. All seating pods will be seated at least six (6) feet from any other seating pod. Attendees must maintain six (6) feet of distance from anyone not in their seating pod at all times while on ballpark property.

Face Coverings

All attendees over the age of two (2) years must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times on ballpark property other than when actively eating or drinking at their ticketed seats.

The requirement of a face covering does not apply to any person with a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering. Attendees who do not comply with the face coving policy may be required to leave the ballpark.

No Bags or Outside Food

In order to reduce touch points between employees and guests, no bags will be permitted except for those that are carried for medical reasons or manufactured diaper bags that accompany infants and young children.

No outside food is permitted inside the ballpark. Each guest may bring one (1) sealed non-flavored water (plastic bottle only) that is one (1) liter or less in size. No bag storage is available at the ballpark.
