California Welcomes Full Capacity Crowds
As California surpasses 70% partial vaccination, the Golden State continues to progress towards live events and relaxed COVID-19 regulations. California's Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly issued new guidelines for live events and outdoor performances, allowing the Rams to operate at full capacity at SoFi Stadium for the 2021 season.
Dr. Ghaly reiterated that capacity and physical distancing restrictions, regardless of setting, would be lifted on June 15.
In addition to full capacity, the California guidelines stated: The state will recommend, but not require, individuals show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Individuals who aren't vaccinated or don't display a negative test may still enter provided they wear a mask. Vaccinated and unvaccinated people are required to wear face coverings when attending crowded outdoor events, such as a Rams game.
"Thanks to LA County Department of Public Health, the heroic work of the medical community and first responders, and everyone doing their part, we are thrilled to announce we will welcome fans to the Rams House this fall at full capacity," Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff said in a statement.
