The 1ST SUMMIT Arena @ Cambria County War Memorial, in conjunction with the Cambria County Emergency Services team, today released a capacity limit and best practices to reopening for the Johnstown Tomahawks regular season games set to begin this Friday October 16 and Saturday October 17.
The reopening guidelines are based on standards provided by federal, state, and local governments, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and public health organizations as of October 2020, so that Pennsylvania facilities can use appropriate recommendations in determining how to safely and responsibly reopen to the public.
“Our public event facilities bring us together for a common purpose and we are proud to stand with our Cambria county businesses, sports organizations and arts communities as venues around the area continue to safely reopen.” said Cambria County Department of Emergency Services Director Art Martynuska. “It is critical that we operate safely, using measures that will preserve our health and the health of others.”
The following are arena guidelines:
- Fan capacity determined by fire code will be 1005
- Mask is mandatory upon entering the facility and concourse areas
- Temperature check upon entering the facility
- Sanitizing stations will be available in high traffic areas
- Social distancing ticket map will be implemented
The facility underwent a thorough cleaning provided by the Supervisor of Community Service, Hal Dues and his team. “We will continue to routinely clean the facility as it is being used in addition to supply PPE for the concessions and support staff” said Dues. “It’s been an overall great collective effort from county officials and operations staff to get the arena ready for opening weekend.”
This season, the arena box office will re-open to the public two days per week on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 10am to 5pm and it will also be open on event days starting at 10am.
For Tomahawks games, fans can purchase general admission tickets for $10.00 in person at the arena, via johnstowntomahawks.com/tickets or by calling the Tomahawks office at 814-536-GOAL. The Tomahawks will determine the available seats utilizing a social distancing map for general admissions after season ticket seats are assigned.
