LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Fans entering Allegiant Stadium will have to show proof of vaccination for all Raiders home games.
According to officials with Allegiant Stadium, the Las Vegas Raiders will require all attendees to show proof of vaccination using the CLEAR's free mobile app. The vaccination requirement will allow fans to enjoy Raiders football without wearing a mask.
The mask policy will take effect on Monday, Sept. 13, when Raiders host the Baltimore Ravens.
The Raiders changed their fan policy in accordance with Governor Sisolak's emergency directive on large gatherings.
“Health and safety has always been our number one priority,” said Raiders owner Mark Davis. “After consultation with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity without masks for fully vaccinated fans for the entire season,” Davis explained.
Fans can receive vaccinations prior to all Raiders home game at Allegiant Stadium.
Raiders officials said medical or religious exemptions won't be honored. If someone is eligible for a shot and doesn't get one, that person or persons won't be allowed to attend the game.
The Raiders said if you get a first vaccine dose a week prior to a game, or you get a vaccine dose on site at Allegiant stadium, you will be allowed in, but only with a mask.
Unvaccinated people with Raiders tickets will be offered full refunds. Those eligible for them will be notified of the refund process by email. However, Raiders officials haven’t talked yet about refunds for those who have purchased parking packages.
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.
The Raiders are the first team in the National Football League announce a no mask and vaccine policy.
