Reopening Policies

We are excited to welcome guests back to Honda Center. The well-being of our guests, staff, players, coaches, media, and performers continues to be our top priority, and as we return to events, heightened sanitation, health, and safety protocols are in effect at Honda Center. These policies are aligned with state and local public health orders, ordinances and guidance as well as mandated NHL procedures. As our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, our policies and plans will be updated as appropriate. Guests are encouraged to check back for the most up-to-date policies and procedures.  

Prior to your visit, please review Honda Center’s new and updated policies and procedures: 

Admission Requirements

At the time of ticket purchase, guests are required to self-attest that they (and all members of their party) will be fully vaccinated or will have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entry to the event. By entering Honda Center, guests are self-attesting that they are fully vaccinated or received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entry to the event.

Wear Cloth Face Coverings

Face coverings must be worn if guests are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. By entering Honda Center without a face covering, you are attesting that you are fully vaccinated.

Face coverings must conform to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. For example, face coverings must be made with at least two layers of breathable material, fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin, fit snugly against the side of the face, and be secured with ties or ear loops to allow the guest to remain hands-free.

Based on CDC guidance, the following types of face coverings are permitted:

  • Cloth or surgical type mask (disposable or reusable)
  • Clear mask
  • Face shield, but only in addition to a face mask

Examples of face coverings not permitted at Honda Center include: 

  • Neck gaiters, even if made with multiple layers of material
  • Costume masks
  • Open-chin bandanas
  • Face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes

No Bag Policy

In accordance with NHL safety and security guidelines, bags and purses, including clear bags and clutches, will not be permitted inside Honda Center effective February 1, 2021. 

Guests are asked to refrain from bringing purses, clutches, large wallets, and additional bags to expedite entry into Honda Center. All arena entrances will only permit wallets 4 in. x 5 in. or smaller. Due to COVID-19 policies and procedures, Honda Center will no longer offer a bag check.

In an effort to accommodate our guests who require a purse/bag, including diaper bags and bags carrying items that are medical in nature, such as prescription medication, breast pumps, and other special medical equipment, will be permitted as long as they are within 16 in. x 12 in. x 12 in. These bags are required to go through additional X-ray screening and inspection. Honda Center’s North Entrance will have one dedicated X-ray screening line. All other arena entrance lines will be No Bag/Express Lines. Click here to view a map of entrances and X-Ray screening location.

Guests who require entry with a purse/bag should arrive early to allow ample time to go through the additional security screening. 

These policies are put in place to provide a safe environment for the public and comply with NHL regulations.
