Las Vegas Masks Required

The State of Nevada automatically adopted the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance related to mask requirements in Clark and other impacted counties. 

The CDC recommended that everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings in counties with substantial or high transmission. 

  • If you are not fully vaccinated and age 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places.
  • You do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings, but in areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, the CDC says consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.

Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas: Vaccination Required

The Las Vegas Raiders will require all attendees at home games to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination through CLEAR’s free mobile app and Health Pass feature, allowing fans to attend games without wearing a mask. The policy will take effect for the first regular season home game, September 13 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.  The Raiders are the first team in the National Football League to announce a vaccine/no mask policy.

The Raiders will offer the opportunity for fans to receive vaccinations on site at Allegiant Stadium prior to Raiders home games, permitting newly vaccinated fans to enter wearing a mask.  

The Raiders announced a policy requiring all full-time employees on the business and football staffs of the organization to be vaccinated in May.  Stadium management company ASM and stadium concessionaire Levy also have implemented mandatory vaccinations for all full-time staff at Allegiant Stadium.

Clear Health Pass

The Raiders and Allegiant Stadium have partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to provide easy proof of vaccination. Complete your Health Pass ahead of the game for faster entry! To get started, download the CLEAR app

To pass Alternate Screening, you will need to bring (1) Identification and (2) Evidence of Vaccination as set forth below and as further explained on this site:

Allegiant Stadium

Las Vegas: Masks Required

At this time, the vaccine requirement policy applies only to Raiders home games at Allegiant Stadium in keeping with the Governor’s State of Nevada Emergency Directive 049. The Raiders and Allegiant Stadium are currently evaluating any application of this policy to other events. For all other events at Allegiant Stadium, all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face mask while inside the stadium. Individual events held at Allegiant Stadium may also implement heightened COVID-19 protocols, so please read all correspondence regarding an individual event carefully.

For Raiders home games: Beginning on September 13, 2021, with our Monday Night Football game, all ticketed fans ages 12 and over for Raiders home games must provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19 and will NOT be required to wear a face mask while inside the Stadium.

We have partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to provide easy proof of COVID-19 vaccination for faster entry. Ticketed fans are asked to download the CLEAR Health Pass mobile app and complete their COVID-19 proof of vaccination before arriving at Allegiant Stadium. The CLEAR Health Pass only needs to be created once and will be good for the entire season. Instructions to download the app, complete the Health Pass and learn more can be found on the FAQs section of our Plan Your Visit website page here.

Currently, the only exceptions are:

  • Guests under the age of 12, who must be accompanied by an adult that meets our theater’s vaccination requirements; or

  • Guests who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical exception or a sincerely held religious belief.

For adult guests over the age of 12 who are not able to be vaccinated for one of the reasons listed above, they must provide proof of one of the following instead of evidence of vaccination, along with matching government-issued ID:

  • Negative Covid-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time, or

  • Negative Covid-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time.

Covid-19 tests must be administered by an official testing center. Self-administered tests will not be accepted. Entry will be denied for guests who do not provide the documentation as required above.

Masks are required for all guests, regardless of age or vaccination status.

Masks must be worn at all times while visiting the theater except when eating or drinking in designated areas. 

All masks must completely cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings.

AEG Presents

AEG Presents, a global leader in concerts and live events, announced today that it will be requiring proof of vaccination for entry into its owned and operated clubs, theatres, and festivals. The decision comes on the heels of the dramatic surge in Covid-19 cases as the Delta variant spreads throughout the United States. AEG Presents is either an owner or partner in such iconic venues and festivals as New York’s Webster Hall and Brooklyn Steel, The Roxy and El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas, Firefly Music Festival, Day N Vegas, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and Coachella Music & Arts Festival, among others.

The vaccination policy, limited only as required by law, will be in full effect nationwide no later than October 1, 2021. Several venues have already been following local government vaccination mandates, with others anticipated to come in the weeks leading up to October 1. The date was chosen specifically to allow time for any eligible unvaccinated ticketholders and staff to reach fully vaccinated status should they choose to do so. Leading up to October 1, AEG Presents will be implementing a policy of showing proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of show date where permitted.

The vaccination policy will be implemented as an open-ended one, with any changes or reversals informed by updates relating to infection rates, transmission data, variant developments, and local and federal regulations.

Vaccine Exemptions Allowed

Any patron needing an exemption due to a medical condition, disability, or religious belief will need to complete the attached form and bring the signed form along with proof of a negative COVID test (molecular, PCR or antigen) that was administered by an official testing center to the event.
