DENVER (KDVR) — Ball Arena is once again mandating masks for events at the venue. They are also encouraging social distancing.
Monster Jam was lucky last year. They were at the Ball Arena just before the pandemic lockdowns.
“Oh my goodness, that’s good. I am glad they got to get a show,” said Cynthia Mathis, Monster Jam tour coordinator. “We are so excited to be back.”
But unlike last year’s pre-COVID show, this year, Ball Arena is requiring masks.
“All of our staff have to wear a mask, but the venue also has in policy that they are requiring a mask as well,” Mathis said.
No mask, no monster trucks.
“It’s just we are following the protocols, we are following the safety protocols of CDC,” she said.
As of now, however, the CDC is only suggesting to indoor mask wearing. It was Ball Arena’s move to require it.
That is not apparently dampening the spirits of Kayla Blood, who will be driving Soldier of Fortune at the show.
“We do a lot of two-wheel moves where you try to perfect different moves like that, but yes, we get huge air,” Blood said.
