Dodgers fans could very soon have a different experience getting to games by the time playoffs roll around. The constant adjustment to COVID-19 policies and procedures has come with the adjustments made by the County of Los Angeles over the last few months.
The most recent change involved masks at Dodgers games. Originally, they were only required in covered and indoor areas around the stadium. That was recently adjusted so that all fans had to wear them at all times, regardless of vaccination status.
The only exception was while actively eating or drinking, as stressed by the Dodgers. But the most recent change will make it much more strict on fans getting into games this postseason. Los Angeles County announced today that a health order issued later this week requires proof of vaccination for indoor bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs, and lounges.
That order will reportedly also apply to events with more than 10,000 fans in attendance. That means the Dodgers would be subject to verifying vaccination status for all home games during the postseason.
The new mandate will reportedly also allow for proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. That would take place of a vaccination card at Dodgers games, The team has not yet commented on the order from Los Angeles County that goes into effect in October.
