Updated Mask Policy

Updated November 19, 2021

Consistent with CDC guidelines, masks remain highly encouraged for all fans in attendance but are no longer required for children or adults. Working staff for all events at FedExForum, including Grizzlies games, will continue wearing masks for the foreseeable future.

Health Screening for fans seated within 15ft of the court

All fans 12 and older attending any Grizzlies or Tigers games at FedExForum have the option to present either proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken 72-hours prior to the scheduled event or proof of at least one dose of the vaccination.

For Grizzlies fans seated within 15 feet of the court, per NBA Health & Safety requirements, all fans 2 or older must either provide proof of negative COVID-19 test 48-hours prior to the scheduled game or proof of vaccination for those 12 and over.
