Seattle Kraken and Climate Pledge Arena are taking every possible reasonable measure to promote a healthier and safer environment for our guests and staff.

COVID-19 Safety & Sanitization

UPDATE MARCH 12, 2022:

In alignment with Gov. Jay Inslee's updated health guidance and state and local health departments, Climate Pledge Arena will no longer require guests to wear masks while attending Kraken games.

Per the guidance, mask wearing is now considered optional, and we respect the decision of guests and staff who choose to continue wearing a mask. The health and safety of all our guests, staff and players remains a top priority.

This follows the earlier decision, in compliance with King County, to no longer require guests to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to attend a game.

Please do not attend an event at Climate Pledge Arena if you have tested positive, been in close contact with someone who is positive or are experiencing symptoms.

Per NHL guidelines, there are some areas of the arena where guests will still need to be masked. We will contact those guests separately and will always have masks on hand.

The Seattle Kraken thank you for your cooperation and patience as we navigate the pandemic together. We will continue to evaluate and follow the guidance, adapting our policies where necessary.
