SPOKANE, Wash. — Whether you’ve received the COVID vaccine or not, for Spokane Shock football, the Spokane Arena said it will be implementing vaccinated and non-vaccinated sections based on the phase the county is in and state reopening guidelines.

They said they are working with the local health department to implement it and plan to roll everything out for the June Shock game, as long as they are still within the limitations of the reopening guidelines.

The vaccinated sections do not affect any concerts on-sale right now and all shows up and on-sale need the full capacity of the facility in order to move forward financially. The arena said the hope and goal is to get enough of the community gets vaccinated and reaches herd immunity so they can reopen at 100% capacity.

The arena has purchased and implemented a lot of new infrastructure for all three of its buildings to help keep everyone safe as they come to events. This includes digital ticketing systems, cashless concession stands, upgrading their HVAC system with bi-polar ionization units, UV handrail disinfection units for all escalators and touchless door openers at the convention center, along with hand sanitizer dispensers and typical COVID cleaning within the buildings.
