CLEVELAND — A temporary mask mandate at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse issued at the end of December is set to expire and after, the arena will follow the city's guidance on masks and face coverings.

The mask mandate requiring anyone over the age of 2 to wear a mask unless actively eating or drinking, was issued on Dec. 31 and is set to expire after Monday night's Cavs-Pelicans game.

Following the mandate, starting on Feb. 1, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will instead strongly recommend masks in the arena.

The new recommendation is in alignment with the City of Cleveland and Mayor Justin Bibb's guidelines for the city.

Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse's mask policy will reflect the policy of what will be in place during All-Star Weekend events and activities.
