CLEVELAND — Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will now require all fans ages two and over attending events to wear a mask at all times while inside the venue.
The temporary requirement will apply to all events, including Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Monsters games, and goes into effect starting this Friday, December 31 for the Cavaliers vs. Atlanta Hawks game that begins at 7:30 p.m.
The rule applies to when guests are walking about and also in their seats, with the only exception coming when people are actively eating or drinking.
Neck gaiters, bandanas and masks with valves or vents do not meet health and safety standards and will not be permitted. If a guest does not have an approved mask at time of entry, a mask will be provided at no cost.
In addition to the mask requirement, individual outside event promoters may require further protocols at their discretion, such as proof of vaccine or a negative COVID test. Ticketed guests will receive a direct email communication that outlines the specific health and safety protocols for the event they are attending. Protocols will also be posted on each show’s designated event page at RocketMortgageFieldHouse.com.
The decision to implement the requirement is a result of continued monitoring of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Cuyahoga County and throughout the country in conjunction with close consultation with local health experts.
The mask requirement is currently scheduled to be in effect through January 31, 2022.
