SALT LAKE CITY (ABC) – Shortly after Salt Lake City Mayor Jenny Wilson signed the mask mandate into effect for Salt Lake County, Vivint Arena issued an update on its health and safety protocols.
Masks will now be required at all indoor Vivint Arena events, among other COVID-19 protocols, in compliance with the mandate.
In a statement, Vivint Arena officials said:
“To support the health and well-being of our community, Vivint Arena will be enforcing the Salt Lake County Health Department requirement of mandatory masks for indoor events at the arena, including Utah Jazz games and upcoming concerts and shows such as Monster Jam, Harlem Globetrotters, and JoJo Siwa. The policy will also be in effect for NBA G League Salt Lake City Stars home games at Salt Lake Community College.”
The existing entry policy for the arena, which requires proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event, remains in place.
People who are actively eating or drinking at arena events are temporarily exempt from wearing their mask, a press release states.
The 30-day mask order from the Salt Lake County Health Department goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 8 through 5 p.m. on Feb. 7. It requires all people in Salt Lake County, regardless of vaccination status, to wear well-fitting face coverings when indoors or lining up outdoors in public.
