The Washington Football Team is scheduled to face the Cincinnati Bengals in the home preseason opener on Friday night at FedEx Field.
Ahead of Friday night’s game, Washington announced an updated mask policy for FedEx Field. The team is working in accordance with Prince George’s County on its new mask policy, which is as follows, per Washington’s official website.
- All ticketed fans will be required to wear an approved face covering at all times when indoors at FedExField, regardless of vaccination status, unless they are actively eating or drinking. Indoor areas include, but are not limited to, the team store, bathrooms, Club Level concourse, elevators, stairwells, corridors, mother’s room, conference rooms, offices, first aid stations, suites when the windows are installed or closed, and the Press Box.
- Face Masks are not required outdoors. Outdoor areas include the open-air seating bowl, main concourse, upper concourse, outdoor ramps, outdoor plazas, suites when the windows are removed or open, and the parking lot.
- For fans who are not fully vaccinated, face coverings are recommended throughout FedExField and should only be temporarily removed when actively eating or drinking. Those considered fully vaccinated are fans who are two weeks past their final shot.
- Children under two years do not require a face covering.
FedEx Field has made many changes this offseason to ensure a safe environment for fans in 2021. One of those changes is everything is now completely cashless. There will also be increased sanitizing stations, especially in high-traffic areas.
Washington and Cincinnati are scheduled for an 8 p.m. ET kickoff.
