United Center eases COVID-19 requirements for fans to enter arena
CHICAGO - The United Center is lifting its COVID-19 requirements for fans to catch a game or event as Chicago continues to dial down mitigation measures.
The home of the Bulls and Blackhawks announced Tuesday it will no longer require fans to present a negative COVID-19 test or proof of full vaccination to enter the arena, but masks will continue to be optional, according to a statement from the facility.
The updated policy goes into effect beginning with the NCAA March Madness Midwest Regionals on Friday and Saturday. It will remain in place for all events until further notice.
