Wells Fargo Center Statement On Mayor Kenney’s Announcement Lifting Covid Restrictions
May 18, 2021
After Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced today that all indoor event capacity restrictions will be lifted effective June 11, Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations for Wells Fargo Center and the Philadelphia Flyers, released the following statement.
“This is a great day for our city. We've worked incredibly hard to safely welcome back fans to Wells Fargo Center, and today's announcement means that starting June 11, we'll be open at full capacity once again for games, concerts, and other events. For more than a year, we've missed the incredible feeling of a full capacity crowd on Broad Street, and now, we can finally say that those are officially coming back," said Camillo. "The health and safety of our guests will always be our first priority, so as we bring our arena back to full capacity, we'll continue working with public health officials to ensure that everyone who visits the arena can do so safely."
Over the last year, Wells Fargo Center has undergone a comprehensive health and safety transformation. Earlier this year, the venue was awarded the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management, a widely-respected, evidence-based, third party-verified rating of the venue’s health and safety protocols. The arena also recently completed an $11 million renovation of its HVAC systems, installing a new, state-of-the-art air filtration system that replaces all the air in the arena’s seating bowl every 30 minutes.
