Seahawks, Kraken announce vaccine requirements for fans
The Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Kraken both announced Tuesday that fans will need to be fully vaccinated to attend games. Seahawks fans can also present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of kickoff.
SEATTLE - Everyone age 12 and older will need proof of vaccination to attend events at Climate Pledge Arena, including Seattle Kraken hockey games.
The venue made the announcement Tuesday saying that there will be a convenient process for fans to show proof that they are fully vaccinated using their smartphones.
All full and part-time employees and contractors will also need to be fully vaccinated.
"By announcing the policy today, the team is ensuring that fans, who are not yet vaccinated can do so ahead of the first event in the arena," officials wrote in a news release. "People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine."
