The St. Louis Blues announced beginning Friday, Oct. 15, fans ages 12 and older attending home games are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a recent negative COVID-19 test result for entry into Enterprise Center.

The measure is intended to protect the health and wellness of fans, guests, sponsors, staff, players, officials, media and all who will attend Blues games. The policy will take effect ahead of the Blues’ regular season home opener on Saturday, Oct. 23, against the Los Angeles Kings.

“We have introduced and adjusted policies for our fans and guests throughout the pandemic to reflect the evolution of the virus and the best safety practices available,” Chris Zimmerman, president and CEO of business operations of the Blues, Enterprise Center and Stifel Theatre, said. “Our plan to use vaccine validation or negative test results as a requirement for entry is in line with policies being implemented by our division rivals in Nashville and Chicago, as well as dozens of other sports teams, stadiums, arenas, outdoor amphitheaters and festivals, and anywhere people come together for a good time.”
