Updates Regarding COVID-19

The current New Jersey State COVID restrictions are as follows:

As of June 4, 2021, large venues, including sports and entertainment venues, with a fixed seating capacity of 1,000 or more may host events at 100 percent capacity indoors; Social distancing between individuals or groups is not required. For more information please see Executive Order 242. Microsoft Word - EO-242 (nj.gov) 

 

Our new procedures and protocols will be in place to best protect you, and everyone inside the facility.   Please check back often for updates on opening as we implement guidelines to ensure your safe return.

GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES

Clear Bag Policy:

To minimize contact and ensure a faster entry process, the CURE Insurance Arena is moving to a clear bag policy for the 2021 Fall Season.

Masks:

For June 2021 events, patrons are required to wear masks at all times except while actively eating or drinking in your seat as permitted. Masks must cover your nose and mouth.  This policy will be updated accordingly for events as more information is received regarding New Jersey State COVID regulations.

Mobile Ticketing/Touchless Scanning:

We have introduced new touchless options at the facility including mobile ticketing and touchless scanning at entry points to reduce contact between individuals.  Mobile ticket delivery is an electronic delivery method by which your tickets are emailed directly to you and displayed on your smartphone device.  You will then scan your barcode/ticket to enter the facility independently and without contact with a staff member. 

Stay Home if Sick:

Guest should stay home if they:

· Are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms (such as fever, a sore throat, chills, cough, shortness of breath, congestion, nausea, or vomiting). 

· Have been in close contact with an individual diagnosed or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms within the past 14 days. 

· Have been directed to self-isolate or quarantine by a health care provider or public health official. 

· Are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test. 

Social Distancing:

Social distancing is no longer required inside venues in the State of New Jersey.

Wash Hands:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. 

 

WHAT WE ARE DOING AND HAVE DONE

Air Filtration:

Enhancements included the installation of a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization System in the facility’s arena bowl air handlers.  The NBPI system is used for particle reduction, odor control, pathogen control, energy savings and static electricity control.   Also, when weather conditions allow, we are able to take in as much outside air as possible which would help in circulating new fresh air in addition to our filters in place.

Cleaning and Disinfecting Procedures:

Following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and local authorities, we are focused on the disinfection of high-touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, escalators, elevator buttons, and bathrooms. Spectra at the CURE Insurance Arena has purchased Victory Innovations Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers that will be used to get a deeper and broader reach of disinfecting all areas of the venue.

Hand Sanitizer Stations:

Hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the facility.

While we have taken enhanced health and safety measures to protect our venue guests. There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the CDC, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By entering the venue, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and Venue disclaims any and all liability related thereto.

In accordance with the guidance and recommendations set forth by the CDC and local health officials, we respectfully request that all guests continue to monitor potential symptoms before deciding to attend in-person events.
