SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz will increase the fan capacity allowed at Vivint Arena to 5,600 when they face the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

The team had allowed 3,902 fans to attend games beginning February 1. The team opened the season by allowing 1,500 fans to watch the games in person.

“With no change in health and safety protocols, Vivint Arena will start the second half of the season with a socially distanced seating capacity of 5,600 fans throughout the lower bowl, upper bowl and suite level for Jazz games,” the team announced.

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.

“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.”

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.

As it stands, 17 of the league’s 30 teams are currently allowing fans to view games live in their home arenas.

The Jazz own the best record in the NBA at 27-9 entering the second half of the NBA season.
