METS UPDATE HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES FOR CITI FIELD
FLUSHING, N.Y., May 21, 2021 – The New York Mets today announced updated health and safety regulations for fans at Citi Field that will take effect beginning with the team’s next homestand, starting on Monday, May 24. Starting that day, fans will no longer be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter Citi Field. Additionally, the Mets will open 21 seating sections to fully vaccinated fans that will be free of social-distancing rules. Those 21 sections will hold a total of 3,870 fans, bringing the total capacity at Citi Field to 12,222 fans.
Tickets in fully vaccinated fan sections are available for purchase now at Mets.com/VaccinatedSections. These sections are reserved for fans ages 16 and older who are at least 14 days removed from their final dose of any of the three COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson& Johnson). While seated in fully vaccinated sections, fans will not be required to wear a mask. Face coverings are still required outside of fully vaccinated sections. All fans with seats in a fully-vaccinated section must enter the ballpark through the Bullpen Gate and are responsible for providing proof of vaccination.
The Mets are offering vouchers, good for two tickets to a future Mets game (blackout dates apply), to the first 250 fans who receive either dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at Citi Field each day during the team’s next two homestands (May 24-30 and June 11-17). Fans may instead choose to receive a complimentary ticket to the game on the same day they receive the vaccine, based on availability.
