Many professional and amateur sporting events were shut throughout a lot of the pandemic, leaving die-hard fans in the lurch. Boston is known in particular for having an incredible sports culture — and lucky for baseball fans, you can still buy tickets to see the Red Sox live at Fenway Park. Here’s what you need to know.
Currently, Fenway Park is open for business — but they recommend anyone who is considered to be “high-risk” under CDC guidelines to refrain from coming to the ballpark.
For fans who do not fall under the high-risk category, Fenway is compliant with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ and City of Boston’s guidelines. This means, as of August 27th, masks are required in all publicly accessible indoor spaces at Fenway Park, including team stores, restrooms, elevators and indoor clubs or restaurants. There are exemptions for those actively eating and drinking, but not for vaccination status.
While the health survey that was required for Fenway Park visitors was eliminated on May 29, masks are still mandatory on all public and private transportation systems, including rideshares, taxis, MBTA and commuter rail, and bags are restricted with exceptions limited to medical devices and diaper bags.
Inside the park, cashless payment options are available, and Fenway has promised “enhanced” cleaning of restrooms and other “high touch areas” by the Fenway Park Clean Team. Hand sanitizer and wipes are available at entry gates and throughout the stadium, and anyone exhibiting potential Covid-19 symptoms can contact the nearest Fenway staff for medical evacuation.
If you need a ride to the ballpark, GO Boston is here to get you to the game safely and comfortably. Go Red Sox!
