Barclays Health & Safety Protocols
Due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 Pandemic, New York City has recently updated their health and safety requirements for all indoor events. All attendees 12 or older must now present proof of at least one dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine in order to enter the venue and attend the show indoors. In attending the event, you certify and attest that you and all individuals in your party attending the event will abide by the following regulations:
All fans 12 or older will provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (a photo or hard copy of a vaccination card, NYC COVID Safe App, New York Excelsior App, or an official vaccination record) and an ID that contains the name of the individual, and either a photo or the birth date that matches the documentation. For unvaccinated fans under 12, the local Health Dept. requires a mask to be worn for indoor events. These regulations will apply to all members of your party before they are allowed entry to the event and to any users of the tickets purchased by you.
Signage has been installed throughout Barclays Center addressing COVID-19 protocols and CDC prevention tips.
SECURITY BAG CHECKS
Guest bag checks will be performed by X-ray machines to ensure a touchless experience for our personal items (click here for our current bag policy).
Mask wearing is encouraged, except while actively eating or drinking. Please check back periodically for any updates with respect to this mandate.
Barclays Center is committed to hosting world-class sports and entertainment with the primary goal of keeping all fans, guests, employees, players, and performers safe. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working diligently with the NBA, the WNBA, New York State, New York City, and our own medical experts, as informed by the CDC, to establish and implement health and safety protocols for anyone who enters the arena.
The number of patrons permitted to attend events at Barclays Center is subject to New York State, NBA, and WNBA guidelines. Guests will be notified about specific protocols (including any required advanced COVID-19 testing) necessary to attend events in-person at the time of purchasing tickets. Each event ticket will be provided in a digital format and will also contain standard “ticket-back” terms, including health and safety requirements (to which each patron attending a Barclays Center event shall be subject).
