Health & Safety Policies

The health and safety of guests, athletes, artists and staff remains Amway Center's top priority. Our Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR™ Facility Accreditation affirms our commitment to outbreak prevention, response and recovery. We've added numerous sanitization stations, increased our frequency of cleaning, transitioned to mobile ticketing and cashless transactions, upgraded air filters and implemented UV lighting. Providing a safe environment for everyone is our goal.

Select Amway Center events may require additional health & safety guidelines including, but not limited to, providing a negative COVID-19 test, verification of being fully vaccinated and wearing a mask. Please review your event's specific guidelines on the event detail page regularly as health check requirements are subject to change at any time.

Assumption of Risk

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists 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.

Any interaction in any public place poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit. By entering Amway Center, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
