ASM Global, the company that manages the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Smoothie King Center, plans to continue with mask requirements for future events.

In a memo obtained by WWL Sports Director Kristian Garic, the company said "For event days where 100% capacity is the sellable/useable capacity, masks will be required to be worn by everyone (employees, patrons, vendors, tenants, subcontractors, etc.)."

Earlier this week, New Orleans Mayor's office spokesman Beau Tidwell indicated masks might not be required of everyone.

"The way you get to a hundred percent capacity is everybody's wearing a mask, and/or they can provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative test," said Tidwell.

This July, the Monster Jam monster truck exhibition will be the first event at the Superdome to be allowed to have up to 100 percent capacity since the beginning of the pandemic. The city said all guests would be required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination.
