Assumption of Risk

You must follow all stadium policies, including health and safety policies, and posted instructions while in the stadium and on stadium grounds. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. No precautions can completely eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. By entering the stadium and stadium grounds, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure of COVID-19.
