As a loyal member of the South Bend Cubs family, we feel it is important to share regular updates that we are marking for the 2021 season.
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our guests and employees. While we always strive to maintain the highest standards when it comes to cleaning and maintaining our facilities, we will be taking it even further this year by doubling the number of hand sanitizers and updating our touchless restroom facilities.
We are in regular communication with the Saint Joseph County Health Department and continue to follow the most up to date CDC guidelines. With that in mind, we wanted to provide you with the most up to date information as we move forward with 2021 season.
