Newark has lifted the vaccination and mask mandates for indoor establishments and facilities in the city as of Wednesday, March 2.

As a result of an Executive Order signed by Mayor Ras J. Baraka, effective immediately and unless required otherwise by the artist or promoter of a particular show, guests will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test to enter Prudential Center, and will not be required to wear face masks to attend events, including New Jersey Devils games.

As artists or promoters of certain events may still require that attendees wear a mask and/or show proof of vaccination, medical exemption or a negative test, patrons should visit for a full policy update and explanation of vaccination and masking requirements for individual events.

For complete health and safety protocols, as well as specific questions regarding the timing of the City’s policy updates and questions on specific shows, please visit
