Sunday 49ers home game will not require proof of vaccination or away masks – Santa Clara News Online
By Robert Haugh
This Sunday at Levi’s stadium, the 49ers will fight it Green Bay Packers. Kick-off is at 5:20 p.m.
Fans will not be required to show proof of vaccination or will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test to enter the stadium.
Fans will also not be required to wear masks on their seats outside. But they will have to wear masks in interior spaces like luxury suites and washrooms.
And if someone does get sick, the 49ers make it clear, it’s not the team’s responsibility.
Here is the information of the 49er website.
Three NFL teams now require proof of vaccination or a negative test for fans entering their stadiums for games. The Raiders, Saints and Seahawks. In a few weeks, the Rams will also require it, because of a Los Angeles County Department of Public Health order.
Santa Clara County Public Health Department is not as strict as Los Angeles. Our county follows the most flexible state guidelines.
Currently in California, outdoor gatherings of 10,000 or more are categorized as “mega events”. But the California Department of Public Health only recommends, without requiring, that sites verify participants’ immunization status. For indoor events, proof is required.
According to our sources in the county, the 49ers have been working with the Santa Clara County Oversight Board and local public health officials on this policy. 49er President Al Guido led the lobbying effort to follow the more flexible state guidelines.
