As of Dec. 15, fans ages 5 years and older attending SoFi Stadium must provide a proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test within 48 hours prior to the event and within 24 hours with an antigen test. Guests 18 years and older must have a photo I.D. and masks are required at all times unless eating or drinking.
