In a concerted effort to ensure the health and safety of all MFFLs, the Dallas Mavericks and American Airlines Center have continued extensive COVID-19 measures for this season’s home games, including electrostatic sanitizing of the arena bowl and seats after each event, sanitizing of all high touch areas multiple times throughout events, plexiglass partitions at all concession stands and food service stations, over 200 hand sanitizing stations throughout the arena, cashless venue points of sale, vaccinated game day staff, suites dedicated to immunocompromised fans, and vaccination stations at the Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Club.Beginning three hours prior to tipoff until halftime, MD Labs will administer either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines for those seeking first, second or booster shots. Children, ages 5 to 11 years old, are also welcome as pediatric vaccination doses are now available. No appointment is required, and walk-ups are welcome, even for those not attending the games. Vaccine recipients should plan to be observed for 15 minutes after the administration of their vaccine. All participants must complete COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent forms.
“With our season off to a great start on the court, we strive to maintain that same positive energy off the court,” said Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall. “The safety and well-being of our fans will always be our top priority.”
American Airlines Center has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, American Airlines Center has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its facility.
Face masks are required for all employees and guests over the age of 2. The mandated COVID-19 protocol to submit proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of entry still applies for fans seated within 15 feet of the court. The Mavs will continue to monitor local COVID trends and make adjustments to the policies, as warranted, with guidance from the CDC, NBA and local officials.
