BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio)— Fans looking to attend games, concerts, and other events at the TD Garden will face new requirements for entry to the arena starting this month.
The venue announced in a press release Wednesday that any fan 12-years-old and older must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test to enter the arena starting Sept. 30th, when the Bruins kick off their preseason. Fans under 12-years-old will not be required to show either, but will be required to wear a mask while in arena.
The TD Garden will accept physical or digital vaccine cards as proof of vaccination. Fans over the age of 18 will be required to bring a valid form of identification to verify the vaccination.
For COVID tests, the venue will accept a digital or printout of a negative rapid or antigen test as proof. The venue said self-administered at-home tests will not be accepted.
In addition to these requirements, masks are required for all attendees at events in the TD garden regardless of vaccination status, except when eating and drinking.
The press release noted that some events may require additional protocols depending on the policies of the group putting on the event.
