Sahlen Sports Park COVID-19 
Protocols and Policies

Sahlen Sports Park is committed to providing a safe and healthy facility for all our guests. To ensure we have a safe and healthy environment, we have developed the following guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All individuals are responsible for following these guidelines. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 at our facilities, which requires full cooperation among all individuals. Only through this cooperative effort can we establish and maintain safety and health for all. We will continue to update our protocols as more information and clarity is issued by Erie County and New York State.
