The Las Vegas Raiders announced on Monday they will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination from all attendees at home games this season. Anybody in attendance will have to show proof of vaccination through CLEAR’s free mobile app and Health Pass feature. They will not then not be required to wear a mask at the game.

If a fan is not vaccinated, the team is offering vaccinations on site at Allegiant Stadium. It appears that if a fan gets the vaccination at that point, they’ll be permitted to enter the stadium wearing a mask.

The policy goes into effect on September 13 when the Raiders host their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.

According to CDC numbers the morning of Tuesday, August 17, Clark County has seen 42.8% of the population fully vaccinated and 53.1% at least partially vaccinated. It is currently listed as having a “high” level of community transmission.
