Nationals Park Allows Fully Vaccinated Fans Go Maskless Beginning May 21


The Washington Nationals said on Wednesday that fully vaccinated fans will be permitted to enter the Nationals Park without the requirement of wearing face coverings starting Friday, May 21.

“Fully vaccinated” individuals — when 14 days passed after receiving the last dose of a COVID-19 vaccination series — can be present without a mask within the whole complex, both indoors and outdoors.

Unvaccinated viewers will still have to wear masks at all times, except for when they are eating or drinking while seated.

The decision followed the District’s lifting of its mask mandate earlier this week, falling in line with the CDC’s recommendations.

The park is also planning to open at full capacity on June 10, after its request was approved by DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The venue is currently operating at 36 percent capacity.

In partnership with the Washington Nationals and the DC government, the Nationals Park will serve as a walk-up vaccination site on Friday, May 21, from 4 to 8 pm, and on Sunday, May 23, from 10 am to 2 pm, offering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

The first 200 people to receive the shot will win a Nationals prize bag.
