What are Covid-19 precautions:
Per current North Carolina order, facemasks or face coverings are required to be worn in public places like Truist Field with limited exceptions. If facemasks/face coverings are not worn by those wishing to attend an event at Truist Field, entry can be denied by the Charlotte Knights to stay in accordance with the order. Facemasks/face coverings are to be worn while entering and moving about the facility. Facemasks/face coverings may be taken off when consuming food and beverages while seated. Thank you for your attention to this order and helping Truist Field remain as safe and enjoyable as possible.
The Knights, in consultation with Atrium Health and the Mecklenburg County Public Health Department, have developed comprehensive health and safety protocols for the reopening of this facility. This includes deep cleaning of all concourse touchpoints, concession areas, and restrooms, social distancing markers, and limited capacity in all public spaces. Please note that any public space where others are present allows for an inherent risk of exposure to Covid-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit. According to the CDC, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are more vulnerable to the virus.
Temperature Check: At the entrance, there will be a temperature check. If you do not pass the temperature check of 100.7, you will not be allowed to enter the ballpark and will be given a refund for your ticket.
Mask Protocol Masks must be worn at all times unless you are eating or drinking. If a guest does not have a mask when being temperature checked, they may purchase one inside the Knights Team Store. Guests refusing to wear a mask will not be allowed access into Truist Field. Protocols are in compliance with North Carolina guidelines.
