COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy


All guests over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear masks in all areas of Allianz Field unless actively eating or drinking.

Masks are required to be worn over the nose and mouth, and can include a paper or disposable face mask, a cloth face mask, a scarf, a bandana, a neck gaiter, or a religious face covering. A mask that incorporates a valve designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are NOT sufficient face coverings because they allow exhaled droplets to be released into the air.


In light of the highly transmissible Delta variant and increasing case numbers in Minnesota, we require all guests over the age of 12 to present proof of either full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to attending Ópera Afuera.

All guests age 16+ will be required to show a valid ID along with proof of vaccination/negative test. Guests under the age of 12 are highly encouraged to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to attending the event, but not required.

Being fully vaccinated means completing your final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before the performance date. Proof of vaccination or a negative test result must be shown when entering the venue. Proof of vaccination includes bringing a physical vaccination card or showing a digital photo of your vaccination card. Proof of a negative test result includes bringing a printed or digital copy of your test results.

If ticket holders do not meet these requirements, or if ticket holders have COVID-19 symptoms, test positive for COVID, or are uncomfortable attending a performance, we will work with them to donate their tickets or provide a refund, with no fees or penalties.

Find a testing site that is convenient for you at mn.gov.

Your safety is our top priority. If you have any questions about these event guidelines, please contact [email protected], or contact Patron Services, M–Th, 10am–5pm, at 612-333-6669.
