COVID-19 Protocols for the Class AA, A, B - MPA Basketball Tournament held at the Portland Exposition Building and Cross Insurance Arena (Portland, ME)
Spectator Guidelines - Portland Exposition Building (Expo)
Spectators at the Portland Exposition Building (EXPO) must wear face masks at all times. To enter the facility spectators must show one of the following: proof of being fully vaccinated; or a negative test result from a third-party provider, [Doctor's office, pharmacy or testing location]. PCR test within 72 hours or Antigen test within 24 hours along with a valid driver's license/student school ID. A Drs. "note of recovery" is acceptable - but we will only accept a certified note approved by a Dr./nurse that will allow a person entry into the facility if they have tested positive within 90 days - this, along with a photo ID, will be acceptable. A home test is not acceptable, given that we would have no way to verify this information. All patrons will be required to wear a mask while in the building.
