TD Garden to implement COVID-19 guidelines for the upcoming season

The TD Garden, home to the Boston Celtics and Bruins, will have new COVID guidelines implemented for the upcoming season and they are set to take place as soon as next week.

According to a Wednesday press release, the TD Garden, Celtics and Bruins will require guests ages 12 years or older to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test before entering the arena effective September 30. 

On where the TD Garden has called it the "Play It Safe" section on their website, fans under the age of 12 will not need to present proof vaccination or negative COVID-19 test, but are required to wear a face mask. The site also further elaborates on what it means to being "fully vaccinated" against COVID-19.
"Individuals are considered "fully vaccinated" against COVID-19 at least 14 days after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series (e.g. Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or at least 14 days after they have received a single-dose vaccine (e.g. Johnson and Johnson/Janssen)."
The Garden website also has information on what to do with your tickets if you or a member of your party gets sick before a game.
"If you have tickets to a game and you or a member of your party become sick and cannot agree to the Play It Safe Promise on the day of your event, you may transfer, resell, or donate your tickets through Account Manager."
Fans will have to wear a mask at all times around the arena, regardless of vaccination and or testing status, with the only exception being if actively eating or drinking. Celtics and Bruins fans will be also asked to use the Garden's "touch-free" delivery service to encouraged orders of food and drinks by taking advantage of the touch-free app.
