Dodger Stadium will debut a “fully vaccinated” section Saturday where fans may sit shoulder-to-shoulder without social distancing.
The “vaccination zone” will be located in the stadium’s “Loge” sections 166LG and 168LG and fans will need to provide “proof” at the gate that they either received their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, or tested negative within 72 hours of the game.
The Dodger Stadium guide also defined “fully vaccinated” by the CDC’s standard of two weeks or more since receiving the second Pfizer or Moderna dose, or two weeks after the Johnson & Johnson single-dose shot.
With children under the age of 16 not qualifying for vaccinations, proof of negative COVID-19 tests will need to be shown for them to enter. Children younger than 2 years old do not need proof of either a vaccination or a negative test. Coupled with the proof will need to be a valid, government-issued photo ID where the name matches the name on either the vaccination card or negative test.
Fans will only be allowed to enter the stadium through the right field loge entrance and will not be allowed in without the proof stated above.
Even with the section being for fully vaccinated individuals, mask mandates will still be in place in accordance with California’s health regulations. The stadium has also set a standard for what is considered a valid face covering, restricting neck gaiters, bandanas, and masks with ventilation valves.
With L.A. County being in the orange tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, outdoor stadiums are currently permitted to sell tickets at 33% of its usual capacity, which would be about 18,000 seats at Dodger Stadium. The allowed capacity could go up as much as 67% if a venue requires all guests to show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
The Dodgers have not announced further dates for the “fully vaccinated” sections, outside of Saturday, April 24.
