Q: WHAT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ARE BEING TAKEN?

A: In addition to following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DHSH) guidelines, we are working closely with Tarrant County and the City of Arlington to ensure events meet all recommended health and safety standards.

In accordance with Governor Abbott’s latest executive order, all guests entering Globe Life Field will be required to wear a face covering. The requirement does not apply to people who are eating or drinking, to anyone for whom the wearing of a face covering poses a significant mental or physical health risk, and/or to children under the age of 10 (please note, however, that the CDC recommends face coverings for all people 2 years of age or older).
