March 9, 8:45 p.m. (PT): SAP Center at San Jose is aware of the County of Santa Clara's Public Health Department order to prohibit public and private mass gatherings through the end of March. We will adhere to the mandated guidelines. No events are scheduled at SAP Center until Tues., March 17. We will be reviewing each scheduled event due to take place for the rest of the month and provide an update in the coming days. We appreciate the understanding and patience of our fans, guests and partners during this unprecedented time.

March 9, 12:00 p.m. (PT): The Tony Robbins' Unleash the Power Within (UPW) event planned for Thursday, March 12 through Sunday, March 15, 2020 at SAP Center at San Jose has been postponed by the organizers. We are working to reschedule this event for the future. The Tony Robbins Management Team will be in communication with all registered UPW San Jose participants in the next 72 hours with details of your options.

March 6, 12:15 p.m. (PT): Based on information that is currently available, events scheduled at SAP Center for this weekend, including tonight's San Jose Barracuda game, will go on as scheduled.

As a reminder, guests attending future SAP Center events are strongly encouraged to follow the health department's suggestion, which recommends that "persons at higher risk avoid mass gatherings such as parades, sporting events, and concerts where large numbers of people are within arm's length of one another."

Please see below for health and safety guidelines for SAP Center guests.

March 5, 4:30 p.m. (PT): Sharks Sports & Entertainment is aware of the recommendations made today by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and we continue to actively monitor the situation.

Tonight's Sharks/Minnesota Wild game will go on as scheduled. We will be evaluating further upcoming events in the coming days.

SAP Center undergoes a rigorous cleaning procedure after each and every event, with particular attention paid to high-traffic, high public-contact areas. Many areas will receive additional, enhanced measures throughout the course of events for the foreseeable future.

Guests attending tonight's game and future SAP Center events are strongly encouraged to follow the health department's suggestion, which recommends that "persons at higher risk avoid mass gatherings such as parades, sporting events, and concerts where large numbers of people are within arm's length of one another."

As a standard, ANY potential guest who is feeling ill, regardless of their symptoms, should always refrain from attending public events.

For all SAP Center guests, we ask the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands.
