Due to new mandates in several counties, including Clark County, where Summerslam will be held, face masks will once again be required for fans in attendance.
On July 27th, Nevada issued an indoor mask mandate spread across 12 different counties across the state as COVID cases rise, with one of those (Clark County) being the home of Allegiant Stadium, the host of Summerslam this year.
Allegiant Stadium released the following statement, saying that all individuals, vaccinated or not, must wear a mask inside of the stadium:
“Allegiant Stadium takes the health and safety of its guests, employees and staff very seriously. In response to rising COVID-19 cases, and in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State of Nevada Emergency Directive 047, all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face mask while inside the stadium.
The State of Nevada & CDC do not currently require proof of vaccination to attend events.
Allegiant Stadium’s COVID-19 protocols are subject to change as additional information is discovered or provided by the State of Nevada & the CDC.
Individual events held at Allegiant Stadium may also implement heightened COVID-19 protocols, so please read all correspondence regarding an individual event carefully.”
If you try to purchase Summerslam tickets through Ticketmaster, you will get a similar notification from the website.
WWE has yet to make a statement on the ongoing situation quite yet.
