The folks at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium have released their COVID spring training protocols, as preparations for St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins training camps proceed.
The protocols were designed in consultation with Palm Beach County Health Department and the Town of Jupiter, based on MLB’s Return-to-Play Protocols.
Social distancing will be the norm: with six feet required between seated groups, which will bring the anticipated capacity inside Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium to approximately 1,462 fans, or 21 percent of typical capacity. Tickets will be sold in allotments of two (2), four (4) and six (6).
Cashless transactions will be the norm, whether it be electronic tickets or concessions purchases, including the use of a food service app to place digital concession orders. And, of course, masks will be mandatory.
You will want to plan ahead before arriving at the ballpark and seeking a parking spot. Fans will be directed to designated entry gates to limit crowding at any one entrance. A designated entry gate will be noted on each ticket. Fans will be asked to exit the stadium through the same gate at which they entered.
