Proof Of COVID-19 Vaccine Required To Enter Warriors Arena In San Francisco

September 13, 2021 14:57 pm · 53 comments

Event attendees at San Francisco’s Chase Center will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to enter the venue for events with more than 1,000 attendees, the Golden State Warriors announced Monday.

The requirement applies to people age 12 and older and complies with a health order that San Francisco public health officials issued on Friday.

Attendees who are ages 2 to 11 will be allowed into the venue if they have proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event.

Warriors officials encouraged event attendees who are 18 or older and at least two weeks removed from their last vaccine dose to utilize the CLEAR Health Pass system to securely store their proof of vaccination.

Event attendees who do not have a digital record of their vaccination as well as attendees ages 12 to 17 will be required to show their physical vaccine card and, if applicable, a government-issued photo identification card.

People who are vaccine-eligible and remain unvaccinated will not be allowed to attend events at Chase Center that have more than 1,000 attendees, regardless of their reason for being unvaccinated or if they have recently tested negative for COVID-19.

All Chase Center attendees and employees are also required to wear a face covering while inside the arena unless actively eating or drinking.

Warriors preseason games are scheduled to begin Oct. 6.

Great news!

While halfwits are embracing Joe Biden’s authoritarian mandate, at least 23 Republican governors have announced their opposition to it.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey: “The Biden-Harris administration is hammering down on private businesses and individual freedoms in an unprecedented and dangerous way. How many workers will be displaced? How many kids kept out of classrooms? How many businesses fined? The vaccine is and should be a choice. We must and will push back.”

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves: “The President has no authority to require that Americans inject themselves because of their employment at a private business. The vaccine itself is life-saving, but this unconstitutional move is terrifying. This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.”

I’ll be avoiding anywhere that there are groups of fully vaxxed people. For one, it doesn’t/didn’t work, and two, from the looks of the studies in Israel, they are super spreaders. And no, I’m not being sarcastic or joking, do some research. The world’s most vaccinated country, also leads in break through cases.

Two records that you don’t want to hold.

Bobohead September 13, 2021 at 3:44 PM

@commonsenseless – Ya did some research did ya? I’m sure it was quite an exhaustive Google search. Probably got pretty intense with multiple tabs open in Chrome. Or were you deep into it and put on a lab coat, some glasses and opened an excel spreadsheet? Hahaha! You did some research – give me a freakin’ break!

Well….. I’ll tell you straight Bobo, I knew a guy who taught himself how to weld by watching how to videos on the internet & got himself a great job at a muffler shop, tho it did require exhaustive research.

Bobohead September 13, 2021 at 6:16 PM

@commonsenseless – well done, you found one reference. Have you contact the WHO to let them know of your research findings? You deserve a break, go get yourself some chocolate milk.

@Jellyfish – absolutely amazing point. You know, I learned how to use Zoom last year, so i should apply to be a Zoom engineer. I’m clearly qualified.

Cowellian September 13, 2021 at 6:36 PM

And the jellied finger slips in another one!

Pyrrhus September 14, 2021 at 8:52 AM

I guess Commonsensor is going to be a shut in.

Also, your article basically refuted that the vaccine doesn’t work. Here’s a direct quote:
“Both vaccines still remained very effective against hospitalization in July—75% and 81% respectively—and those numbers represented only a slight fall from the time of their administration in January. Covid-19 deaths in Israel are also far lower than their peak in mid-January, and even lower than the peak of the wave last October.”

Here’s a credible article that explains what is going on in Israel and how it isn’t as dire as the antivax people are making it out to be. Basically Israel made a few mistakes and will be working on getting boosters out to the people. Now, imagine what Israel would be like right now if they weren’t vaccinated and relaxed all restrictions like they have been.

Just remember folks, according to a new study*, unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to die from COVID.Vaccine isn’t a magic barrier but more like a bullet proof vest. the bullet proof vest gives you a great chance to survive being shot but it doesn’t mean you won’t get hurt. The vaccine gives you a better chance of fighting off the virus and reduces Severity, length, and viral load for those that do get infected.

Definitely better to be fully vaccinated in SF. That place is a filthy cesspool.

Woah China socialists nba
That’s not representative of the equity your kneeling for

Your excluding the people you say can’t get vaccine because their disenfranchised

Your also being bias and hypocrites

Your also causing season ticket holders to burn their tickets

And a foreseeable blockage of socialist book accounts

As well as loss for of Jersey sales and pro China rhetoric

Not to mention that the stadium is payed by American public funds

And furthermore until the scotus absolves the republic for which we stand

Holding public property at siege is against the law

As well as all the players wives and kids are now bound to your decision
And can not enter unless vaccinated
as well as teams who visit must be certified
as well as their families should they come or are in the area to see a game

Again dems trying to put their foot in the vault without opening the door first

If I was a fan I would be demanding proof of player and their families status as well as visiting teams and all personnel

Oh wait did binbiden make China nba players and their families and stafff
fed employees so they don’t have to be vaccinated
Go figure

Gratz curry and his family for becoming a fed employee and skipping the vaccines mandate

Nice to see
Now curry Burry 8 three pointers for our communist regime leaders

Watching communism spread is interesting

MikeyV September 13, 2021 at 6:11 PM

Random, I love your screeds, truly.

I only point out that visiting teams are exempt from these rules because it makes the whole thing even more absurd.

So if Curry doesn’t want the jab, he can’t enter the facility (they practice there too – have to be vaccinated to enter a gym). But visiting players can come in and play.

Keep up the good fight, friend.

Fed UP September 13, 2021 at 3:48 PM

Now we can just hope that Contra Costa County enacts our own vaccine mandate so we can start getting back to normal.

Anon September 13, 2021 at 6:45 PM

We will never get back to the old normal. Idiots like you hoping for a vaccine mandate are the problem. The only way we’ll get away from this government overreach is to NOT comply.

BORbeliever September 13, 2021 at 7:48 PM

Oh Fed UP and other poor SOBs who actually think we will ever go back to normal,

Didn’t you hear AOC’s rant about how ‘We’re not going back to normal’?
There will be no return to normal for the masses. The more we accept these dictates the more there will be.

Bob Kazamakis September 14, 2021 at 4:44 AM

Anon and Borbeliever are right, but it also bears pointing out that it’s not normal to have to get a vaccine just to go out in public.
The vaccine mandate creates a borderline apartheid system. It’s reprehensible to coerce people into getting an injection that they don’t want.

Vax Supremacy September 13, 2021 at 4:07 PM

I’m scared to get vaccinated because apparently it makes you more prone to getting Covid from the unvaccinated 🙄

Fed UP September 13, 2021 at 11:15 PM

That’s exactly opposite of the truth. You are less risk of getting Covid if you are vaccinated. That’s the point of vaccination.

Doh September 13, 2021 at 5:02 PM

Vaccines work. They worked for smallpox, polio, measles, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, typhoid, chickenpox yellow fever, etc. But for some unknown reason too many people think this time science got it wrong.

For the last few months everyone that died from COVID-19 was NOT vaccinated,
A heart patient just died after he couldn’t get a cardiac ICU bed in 43 hospitals.

Puffandstuff September 13, 2021 at 6:13 PM

@ Doh
Not true
Vaxxed have died of COVID as well

Me September 13, 2021 at 6:18 PM

Because they think that the vaccines were rushed. Which yes it came out faster then any other. But what the fail to realize is that technology has been around for along time. So it was pretty easy for them to get the protein they needed. They are just scared.

Oh ya, they also think some kind of conspiracy theory about a government hoax. Even though the rest of the world gets vaccines and shut down just like we did. Vaccines have been out for over a year plus now and they still want to find something to complain about is all.

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 6:55 PM

BS they don’t always work, I had all those listed you commented on, and I still got chicken pox and measles!

Don’t believe science all the time.

Janus September 13, 2021 at 8:41 PM

Headline dated today:

Over 14K Vaccinated People With Breakthrough COVID Cases Have Been Hospitalized or Died

“More than 14,000 vaccinated people in the U.S. have suffered severe illness from a breakthrough coronavirus infection.

As of September 7, at least 11,440 people who had a breakthrough case have been hospitalized and another 2,674 people who had a breakthrough infection have died, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

“Data collected by The New York Times in August shows that in just a month, the number of breakthrough hospitalizations had risen by roughly 3,600, and the number of breakthrough deaths had gone up another 1,000.”

So Doh either Newsweek and the New York Times has it wrong or you do.

Me September 14, 2021 at 2:45 AM


By posting that you just proved everyones point who says vaccines work. A total of 2600 have died from the vaccine right. And about 14k people with other issues. How many people got the shot? Over 380 million right? Close to 180 million have been fully vaccinated. You are over 100x more likely to die from Covid then to have any affect from the vaccine. Here are the numbers. 219 million have been infected. 4.5 million+ dead from Covid… You tell me how the vaccine is bad? In every vaccine there has been deaths and side effects. Hell even in normal medicine you take over the counter.

So you posting that just made your last sentence seem silly.

Bdpirate September 13, 2021 at 5:22 PM

If the vaccine works so well for each person who cares if unvaxed show up?
Stupid mentality..

Bob Kazamakis September 14, 2021 at 4:50 AM

Don’t you know that vaccines are powered by belief? If you surround yourself with people who don’t believe in the vaccine, then your’s won’t work. #FollowTheScience

chuckie the troll September 13, 2021 at 5:37 PM

If the vaccine is 95% effective as advertised then why the hysteria? I got vaccinated and have no desire to attend a game. I am actually more afraid of gang bangers than a few infected people.

Bob Kazamakis September 14, 2021 at 4:52 AM

Pretty sure that things like the Delta variant reduce the effectiveness by a fair amount. That won’t stop a bunch of people from using the old/higher effectiveness in their propaganda.

Pete V. September 14, 2021 at 7:01 AM

The “95% effective” is from the rushed Phase III clinical trials and represents the RELATIVE Rate Reduction which is a very misleading measure…the ABSOLUTE Rate Reduction of vaccine compared to placebo is LESS than 1%. And you’re seeing that play out now, hence the push to get a booster for more gene therapy just a few months after the first two, i.e. these are leaky vaccines that don’t work nearly as well as hoped or advertised. But do enjoy your booster and those that are surely to follow in short order.

Schmee September 13, 2021 at 6:01 PM

I was at the Wallflower concert at the Fillmore in SF on Friday. One of the best concerts I’ve ever seen had a great time Jakob Dylan is amazing. Had to show proof to get in. Still got packed by showtime nearing 1300 capacity

Gremlin September 13, 2021 at 6:06 PM

How amusing. Those who do not have a digital record of their vaccination will need to show “their physical vaccine card and, if applicable, a government-issued photo identification card.” All to attend a fricking basketball game. Yet these same people wouldn’t need to show any form of ID when going to vote. Apparently it is only a hardship to get an ID when it comes to voting.

Ricardoh September 13, 2021 at 6:59 PM

I no longer relate to the players of pro basketball, football, or soccer. That’s just the way it is.

Fed UP September 13, 2021 at 11:16 PM

That’s not true. I gave blood about 6 weeks ago and I was vaccinated several months ago.

Me September 14, 2021 at 2:49 AM

Fed Up

Just ignore this person. They come up with the dumbest things and hopes it sticks. They get proved wrong every time and then try to find another reason.

Straight from RedCross themselves. Just give it up already. Everything you say is a lie and just false.

The Wizzard September 14, 2021 at 6:07 AM

I had it and had the shots and give blood. No Problem.

Sam September 14, 2021 at 12:44 PM

Not false, just outdated. If you haven’t noticed, all the lies change over time with the COVID HOAX. You know that and so does everyone. The only thing constant in your world is me bringing the facts. It’s simple, it was true as can be a few months back but now it’s not. Just like propagandists do with everything. Implantable COVID chips anyone? It’s coming.

Me September 14, 2021 at 12:57 PM

It is false just like most what you try to “Prove” There has been almost no lies about Covid. Most of what they said has stayed. Only things that have really changed is how we go about fighting it. But how deadly it is for a lot of people and how this needs to be over has all stayed the same. Yes mask stance has changed and they learned more. Vaccines never changed.

It’s not just you. It’s people like you that get proven wrong daily by just showing the facts from real scientists and not some nut job on the net. But I get it, You think different and want to believe your own stuff with out the facts. You love gossip and that is ok. I will stick to the scientist and if that makes me a sheep. I am fine with that.

Pete V. September 13, 2021 at 8:12 PM

Eff ‘em…was a DIE-HARD Dubs fan for 40+ years, Barry, JB Carroll, World B. Free, Larry Smith, Run-TMC, Sprewell, Jamison, etc. Even when they had to get all childish about Orange Man Bad and not going to the White House, it was dumb, annoying, and disappointing, but I kept watching games on TV and in person.

But then in Fall 2019 when the China stuff started, Steve Kerr, who he and his fellow traveler Pop couldn’t find a microphone fast enough to blame Trump for ANY- and EVERYthing, all of a sudden went silent on s regime that literally enslaved people and commits genocide upon them.
So Kerr, this educated, well-read intelligent man of the world who runs his yap all day about “gun violence” and sundry other leftist talking points, wanted everyone to believe he just didn’t know anything about what’s going on in China. Almost as hilarious as it is pathetic and cowardly.

Haven’t watched a second of Warriors/NBA since and do not miss it in the least. Good riddance.

Anyone who stops watching basketball or football because of politics let’s be honest was never a true fan. They are the type of fan that watches commercials during the Super Bowl and can’t name a player. The warriors won’t miss you lol…

Cowellian September 14, 2021 at 9:22 AM

Well, you got me there!
I lost interest in pro sports years ago. I just don’t care anymore. Heck, I don’t even watch the super bowl for the commercials.

Pete V. September 14, 2021 at 5:10 PM

“Never a fan” my a**…I’ve got the literal receipts, ticket stubs going back to my first game in 1976, memorabilia including autographs of one of my favorite all-time players, Purvis Short, and the GOAT of basketball color commentators, Jim Barnett, not to mention an encyclopedic knowledge of the Warriors since they moved to the Bay Area which was before I was even born.

So get the hell out with your casting aspersions at those of us who got turned off by the PLAYERS, COACHES, and the LEAGUE making it political, which in turn sapped my enthusiasm for the game. I didn’t make myself stop caring about the game, THEY did.
