Orioles to Lift Attendance Restrictions in June

| May 24, 2021 | 0 Comments

The Baltimore Orioles announced last week that the team will no longer operate with capacity restrictions at Oriole Park at Camden Yards starting on June 1st. The team has been operating at 25 percent capacity in the stadium since the season began in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gameday health and safety protocols will remain in place at Oriole Park, including wearing face masks, cashless transactions, and mobile ticketing. In addition, bags and outside food and beverage will continue to be prohibited until further notice.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott lifted most COVID-19 restrictions in recent weeks.

“That’s great news for everybody,” Orioles Manager Brandon Hyde said in an article on Orioles.com. “It means we’re slowly but surely getting back to normal, which is a great feeling. We’re excited to see more fans in the ballpark.”
