Dodger Stadium officials announced the COVID health and safety measures that have been added to keep fans and everyone safe.
- And Dodger Stadium is getting ready to welcome back fans for tomorrow's home opener, and they want to make sure that they feel safe at home. As our community journalist Eric Resendiz reports, stadium officials say they put out all the COVID-19 safety measures in place to keep everyone safe.
ERIC RESENDIZ: Dodger Stadium is welcoming fans this season with extra safety measures starting at the entrance. People will be greeted with floor markers to help with social distancing. Once you're in, you'll see plenty of hand sanitizer dispensers, especially next to the elevators and restrooms.
Speaking of restrooms, there's only one way in and out, and some stalls and hand sinks have been closed to help space people out. Five new elevators have been added in addition to some escalators to help fans move around easier throughout the stadium. Elevators are limited to four people at a time.
Social distancing, that's also being put into practice when it comes to seating. So they're going to be grouping people into pods and then they're going to be separating the next party over by blocking off the chairs in between them, zip tying them. And the next ones over, those are going to be available for the next party.
And for food and beverages, fans will have to order through an app and pay with a card. Fans can pick up their items in designated areas on their ticketing level. Stadium officials say fans will be able to remove their masks in their designated pod area to eat. And officials also say, keep an eye on these regulations as they may change.
