We’ve Enhanced Our Health & Safety Protocols

The Sacramento Kings protocols for hosting games at Golden 1 Center are rooted in prioritizing measures intended to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. The Kings worked in close collaboration with the Sacramento County Department of Public Health to receive approval to host games with limited fans in attendance. Our policies will be updated as knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve.
