Penn Athletics’ updated Fall Sports Spectator Rules went into effect last weekend when Penn Women’s Football kicked off the fall track and field season. The rules include updated guidelines on mask wear, vaccination status, ticket policies, and perks.
All fans who meet the age limit for the COVID-19 vaccine – 12 years and older – must state that they have been immunized against the virus. Fans must wear face coverings even at athletics events, regardless of vaccination status. Fans who do not reach the minimum age for vaccination must also wear a mask unless they are under five years of age.
For all events without a ticket, fans must register in advance. On the day of the event, too, the spectators must carry out a daily symptom check. Once spectators have followed RSVP and symptom control guidelines, they can enter the facilities one hour before the game starts.
The concession policy has also been updated as only individually packed containers are offered for sale. As full concessions will not be available, fans can also bring their own food and drink to the events as long as they stay socially distant while taking off their mask to eat.
The audience guidelines are part of the university’s overall guidelines for all events and gatherings on campus.
