PEORIA (WEEK) — After operating at just 25% capacity at Dozer Park, the Peoria Chiefs announced Friday it would be increasing its limit to 60%.
Public health officials announced the state of Illinois’ transition to the Bridge Phase last week, which allows spectator events to expand capacity upwards to the aforementioned 60% threshold.
In addition, fully-vaccinated fans will be allowed to enter the park without wearing a facial covering, per the newest CDC guidelines.
Non-vaccinated fans are still required to wear a mask in all public spaces unless actively eating or drinking. If fans still want to maintain social distancing, section 103 will serve as a socially-distanced section for all fans.
“It’s really exciting,” said Chief Revenue Officer Ben Garrod. “It’s been a long year, so to be able to take the next step and see more fans in the stands is a step in the right direction. We look forward to operating at full capacity hopefully sooner rather than later.”
