LA County Public Health Updated Guidelines
On Friday, September 17th, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health issued an order that will impact guests at DHSP events. You can view the updated guidelines on the LA County website.
The latest order requires all guests ages 12 and over to provide ONE of the following in order to be admitted to the stadium:
(a) photo identification with matching proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR
(b) photo identification with matching negative COVID-19 viral test results from within 72 hours of the listed event time
Guests under the age of 12 are not yet permitted to be vaccinated and are not required to provide a negative COVID-19 test but, like all attendees, will be required to wear a mask at all times except when actively eating or drinking.
These requirements will go into effect October 7th and will remain in effect until further notice.
As a service to our fans, we will also offer on-site testing services to fans who do not provide proof of vaccination status or negative COVID-19 test results.
Due to the available vaccination and testing options, refunds for tickets and parking will not be offered. Guests who are unable or unwilling to meet any of the above requirements have the option of transferring or reselling their tickets and parking passes.
The health and safety of our fans, players, and staff is our highest priority, and we will continue to work closely with state and local officials, to ensure we can all safely cheer together.
The mission of AEG Security is to take reasonable steps to protect the safety and security of our guests, employees, and assets with respect toward everyone's dignity and legal rights.
