If a ticket holder can’t provide proof of full vaccination, they will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 48 hours of the game’s scheduled start time. Fans 12 and under will be exempt from these requirements, according to the team’s website.

All Elks business operations and front office employees will be required to be fully vaccinated as well.

Earlier this month the Edmonton Oilers announced fans will need to be fully vaccinated to attend games next season, or produce a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the game’s scheduled start time.

There are currently more than 9,600 active COVID-19 cases in Alberta.
