qurieThe NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders announced recently that they will require all fans to get the COVID vaccine in order to attend home games at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada.
According to the Associated Press, “The Raiders will offer the opportunity for fans to receive vaccinations on site at Allegiant Stadium prior to home games. Fans who do get vaccines at the stadium will be required to wear masks until two weeks after their second shot.”
The team’s official statement on Monday was that the policy would take effect immediately on September 13 for the team’s first home game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Raiders played the entirety of the 2020 football season with no fans, but are planning to play with a full house at 100% capacity this year.
“Health and safety has always been our number one priority,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said. “After consultation with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity without masks for fully vaccinated fans for the entire season.”
