The Dodgers are once again having to change up their health and safety protocols for the 2021 season. With Los Angeles taking a big step back due to COVID-19 outbreaks in the county, the club had to change how fans are able to move throughout the stadium.
That includes once again mandating masks. In their latest update, the Dodgers said that unvaccinated fans are required to wear face coverings while at the stadium. Vaccinated fans are required to wear them when in the indoor areas of the stadium.
More from the team website:
In accordance with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health order (effective July 18, 2021), all individuals age 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask or an appropriate face covering while in indoor settings, such as retail stores and restaurants, except while seated and actively eating and drinking. Indoor settings also include covered stadium concourses and concession stands. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a face-coverings while seated in their ticketed seats
The Dodgers also added that fully vaccinated fans are not required to wear their masks while seated. They did not announce any plans to limit capacity or go back to the pod seating, and that does not appear to be in the plans at all.
The Dodgers have also not said anything about how long these mandates will last. That would presumably be on the city and county as they try to move back into a safer range of positive COVDI-19 resting among the community.
So don’t forget to bring your mask out to the stadium!
