What to Expect

MLB has mandated that all attendees age two years and older 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. This mandate will apply to all seating locations in the ballpark and will be actively enforced. Additionally, this follows the Face Covering guidance from the California Department of Public Health.

Permitted face coverings: KN95, N95, Cloth, Surgical/3-Ply and Face Shield (only when accompanied by another approved face covering)

Not Permitted: Bandanna, Gaiter, and any face covering w/ an exhalation valve

Those who do not comply with the mandatory face covering policy will receive a verbal warning followed by removal from the ballpark. Safety of our guests is our priority and adherence to the new health and safety policies is non-negotiable.
