This Sunday, at Levi’s Stadium, the 49ers will battle the Green Bay Packers. Kickoff is set for 5:20 p.m.
Fans will not be required to show proof of vaccination or have to show a negative COVID-19 test to enter the stadium.
Fans will also not be required to wear masks in their seats outdoors. But they will have to wear masks in indoor spaces like luxury suites and restrooms.
And if anyone gets sick the 49ers are making it clear, it’s not the team’s responsibility.
Here’s info from the 49er’s 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 require it, too, because of a Los Angeles County Department of Public Health order.
Santa Clara County Department of Public Health is not being as strict as Los Angeles. Our County is following the looser state’s guidelines.
Right now in California, outdoor gatherings of 10,000 or more people are categorized as “mega events.” But the California Department of Public Health is only recommending, not requiring, that venues check the vaccination status of attendees. For indoor events, providing proof is required.
According to our County sources, the 49ers have been working with the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and local public health officials on this policy. 49er President Al Guido has led the lobbying effort to follow the looser state guidelines.
