RIT HOCKEY: COVID-19 Updates and Ticket Information


Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all fans (5 years of age and older) attending RIT Men's and Women's Hockey games at the Gene Polisseni Center.

All fans, including all RIT students, faculty, and staff, must be fully vaccinated for entry. Full vaccinated means two weeks after a second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson and Johnson's vaccine.

Everyone (except for children under 2 years of age) will also be required to wear a mask inside the Gene Polisseni Center. Guests under 5 years of age will not be required to have a vaccination. We will continue to monitor U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocols involving children under 5, and may adjust our policies as necessary. 

COVID-19 negative test results will not be accepted for entry.

To verify COVID-19 vaccination, guests age 12 and older will be required to display two items upon entry into the arena:

1.) One of the below  

 - Vaccination Record Card (e.g., original hard copy, photocopy, digital copy, including scanned image, PDF, or digital photograph.)
 - NYS Excelsior Pass
 - Government digital vaccine proof from outside NYS

2.) And a valid photo ID matching your proof of vaccination

- children under 12 will not be required to show photo ID

As a reminder, doors to the Gene Polisseni Center open 60 minutes prior to the start of a Women's game and 90 minutes prior to the start of a Men's game. To avoid delays getting into the arena, please arrive early to allow for extra time to complete the vaccine check and security process.
