SoFi Stadium fans must have vaccinations or negative COVID tests

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is requiring fans attending Rams and Chargers games to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result within 72 hours.

The mandate takes effect beginning Oct. 7 at all outdoor events with at least 10,000 attendees and impacts anyone age 12 or over. Children do not need to have been tested but must wear a mask. Adults also must wear masks.

The first Chargers game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood under the health department edict will be Oct. 10 against the Cleveland Browns. For the Rams, it’s Oct. 24 against the Detroit Lions.

Fans must have had the final dose of their vaccine at least two weeks before game day and must show their vaccination card or an electronic version of their card. If they have not been fully vaccinated, they must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within 72 hours before event time.

People attending NFL games in Buffalo, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Seattle also must be fully vaccinated.

The Los Angeles County order also will apply to any postseason games that might be played at Dodger Stadium, at USC football games at the Coliseum or any pro soccer games with more than 10,000 people in attendance.

It doesn’t apply to games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, where UCLA football plays, because the city of Pasadena has its own health department.
