The city of Chicago, IL officially announced on Tuesday that they will be issuing a mandatory indoor mask mandate rule for all sporting events, including the upcoming AEW Rampage (“The First Dance”) on Friday, August 20th. Here is the official statement from the United Center:
“Fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask while at the United Center. Masks are recommended for all unvaccinated guests and will be provided for guests upon request.”
With the new mandate, the policy will have to change. The mask mandate comes as Chicago (and just about everywhere else) deals with a spike in COVID-19 cases thanks to the Delta variant.
