Barclays Center is committed to hosting world-class sports and entertainment with the primary goal of keeping all fans, guests, employees, players, and performers safe. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working diligently with the NBA, the WNBA, New York State, New York City, and our own medical experts, as informed by the CDC, to establish and implement health and safety protocols for anyone who enters the arena.
What are the entry requirements for guests attending a New York Liberty game?
Beginning March 7, 2022, guests are not required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry into Barclays Center.
Are facemasks required?
As advised by the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, it is strongly recommended that all guests wear a facemask at all times while within Barclays Center, except when actively eating or drinking.

GLOBAL BIORISK ADVISORY COUNCIL (GBAC) STAR ACCREDITATION
Barclays Center received a GBAC STAR Accreditation, which indicates the arena has:
established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like COVID-19
implemented proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices to combat biohazards and infectious disease
highly-informed cleaning professionals trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures intended to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Despite the protocols and requirements we have put in place, no precautions can eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Traveling to and from, visiting, and/or providing services in and around the arena may lead to a risk of exposure to COVID-19. COVID-19 is highly contagious and there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any place where people are present. COVID-19 can lead to severe illness and death. While people of all ages and health conditions have been adversely affected by COVID-19, certain people have been identified by public health authorities as having greater risk based on age and underlying medical conditions. Exposure to COVID-19 can result in being subject to quarantine requirements. Please do your part by complying with our health and safety rules and let’s keep each other safe and healthy.
All information above is subject to change as applicable regulations from New York State, New York City, and the WNBA (as well as CDC guidance) may be implemented.
We are excited to welcome our fans back to Barclays Center to watch Liberty basketball!
