The Three Point Play
Our guiding principles to welcome fans back to the arena:
From hospital grade disinfectants on every surface to upgraded air filters, we’ve enhanced all our cleaning procedures.
Golden 1 Center has received two sought-after certifications in the worldwide cleaning industry – the WELL Health-Safety Rating and the GBAC Star Facility certification. The Kings have also partnered with R-Zero, an industry leader and pioneer to implement new UV-C technology to ensure the highest level of health and safety for players and personnel.X
We recommend frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizing stations for patrons to limit any spread of COVID-19.X
From digital ticketing to cashless payments, we’ve modified processes to enable frictionless experiences with less contact. When contact is unavoidable, we’ve made hand sanitizer stations readily available. All air handlers in the building have also been upgraded with hospital grade filters to improve filtration rate and capture a higher percentage of viruses, bacteria, dust and mold.X
