Dodgers to Institute New Mask Mandate Starting Tonight



The Dodgers just got done announcing a new mask policy this week. With the increase in coronavirus cases again, the team had let fans know via email and press release that masks would be needed for fans going to concession stands. 

Before that, masks were only needed when fans were in converted areas and indoors at the stadium. But Dodgers fans visiting the Ravine this week were met with that change and had to adjust accordingly. 

Now there will be another adjustment made to the Dodgers policy. The team will follow the new County of Los Angeles guideline that mandates all outdoor “mega-events” with 10,000 or more people to require masks at all times. This is regardless of vaccination status.

The only exception to the new mandate from the Dodgers is when eating or drinking in a ticketed seat or at a table around the stadium. The county’s Department of Public Health is set to institute that new regulation beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday night.

So if you are headed out to the stadium to watch the Dodgers take on the Mets in game 2 of the series, make sure to have a mask handy. And make sure it’s one you can wear for a few hours at a time.

  1. I love the Dodgers, but I won’t wear a mask outside. That’s incredibly anti-science and just plain stupid. I’m vaccinated. LA County and City are run by idiots.

  2. Stupid Newsom and Garcetti. I hope that Newsom will be recalled and that a proper governor will not break his own law. Garcetti is hated by Dodger fans, proven by his appearance on opening day receiving boos from everyone. If Newsom was there too, he would have been booed even louder than Garcetti.

  3. Going to the game Sunday – will wear mask below my chin and pull it up only when prompted. Been vaccinated since Feb/Mar. Yes I agree – must recall newsom. Go with the sage from south central!
