Health & Safety Guidelines

As we enter a new era of public events, we are committed to providing the cleanest, healthiest environment possible for all of our guests. We are continuing to work closely with local government and public health officials on the latest guidelines, and have implemented new measures to our operations to ensure we are exceeding industry best practices for cleaning and disinfection, food service, touchless technology and HVAC systems. We’ve designed these new protocols so everyone feels comfortable and confident in their return. Our utmost priority remains the safety of all of our guests, players and staff.

  • Established GBAC™ STAR Accreditation, the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery certification for facilities
  • To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, Lumen Field demonstrated compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to the implementation of personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

  • Face shields are not an acceptable substitute for masks unless an approved face mask is worn underneath.
  • Masks with exhalation valves or vents are not permitted.

We reserve the right to require guests to remove and replace face masks that are deemed offensive, or tend to provoke, shock, or offend the community or any group.
