TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Donald L. Tucker Center will play host to Florida State basketball and limited amounts of fans alike, but this year there are new policies to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Tuesday, the FSU Ticket Office tweeted a graphic detailing the new policies to keep fans safe while watching Seminole basketball this season.

The new policies include:

  • Masks are required to be worn while in the venue
  • Cash transactions will be limited to avoid contact
  • Practice social distancing and maintain a safe distance
  • All high traffic areas will be frequently sanitized
  • Hand sanitizers are now located throughout the facility for attendee use
  • A clear bag policy is now in effect

The clear bag policy is similar to the one that is already in effect at Doak Campbell Stadium for football games.

Attendees are not required to go through a health screening but are advised to not attend events if they have been exposed to or show symptoms of COVID-19, according to the Tucker Center website.

“There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death,” said the Tucker Center website. “By entering the venue, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and the Tucker Center disclaims any and all liability related thereto.”

The Tucker Center hosts its first basketball game with the new policies Tuesday night at 6 p.m. for a women’s matchup between the Florida State Seminoles and the Florida Gators.
