“You’ll notice a variety of changes that have been implemented to create a safe, fun, and enjoyable experience. The changes include requiring masks for all attendees, contactless entry, a no bag policy, digital tickets, socially distanced seating and more.”
According to a previous release, the team implemented several safety measures and protocols due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including mandatory face coverings, mobile entry and screening procedures at all entrances, plexiglass barriers at point of sale locations, and social distancing signage.
The arena has earned its Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) certification, an NBA requirement for return to play, for its cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention protocols.
The Jazz are one of nine teams currently allowing fans to attend games live in the arenas. Cleveland, Indiana, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, Toronto (games played in Tampa), and the Orlando Magic all also host fans.
Fans are required to undergo a health screening on the Utah Jazz app before entering Vivint Arena.
