For home games, the Las Vegas Raiders will demand spectators to show confirmation of Covid-19 vaccine.

The NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders stated Monday that fans will be required to provide confirmation of Covid-19 immunization in order to attend home games this season at their glittering new Allegiant Stadium. By Jill Martin, Kay Jones, and Eric Levenson, CNN
The immunization requirement will take effect on September 13, the day before the team’s first regular-season home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
Fans will be able to attend home games without having to wear a mask as a result of this decision, according to the press release.
The policy on vaccines and no masks is the first of its type in the NFL.
The Raiders relocated to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last year, but due to the pandemic, no fans were allowed to attend games.
“Our number one priority has always been health and safety,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement.
“After consulting with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity for the entire season without masks for fully vaccinated fans,” says the new rule.
New measures for huge events in the state were announced by Steve Sisolak.
Any event with a capacity of 4,000 people or more can either compel all attendees to wear masks or provide masking exemptions to those who demonstrate proof of vaccination.
Indoors, he said, children under the age of 12 and those who are just partially vaccinated must still wear a mask.
“My goal with today’s new policy decision is to give the private sector additional options with a public benefit — the freedom to remove their mask during a concert or game if they’re completely vaccinated,” Sisolak said.
The vaccine mandate is the latest example of the NFL leveraging its enormous clout to promote Covid-19 vaccines, which offer excellent protection against infection and serious illness.
Those who have been inoculated have been given vast liberties, while those who have not been vaccinated are subjected to onerous limitations and continuous testing.
Furthermore, the NFL has stated that breakouts among unvaccinated players might result in forfeits and jeopardize a team’s playoff chances.
The incentives were effective.
The Atlanta Falcons became the first NFL team to get their entire roster immunized against Covid-19 on Monday, achieving a pristine 100% immunization rate.
The squad said on its website that “each player will now experience the perks of being able to work out and eat together.”
“They won’t have to test every day, they won’t have to wear masks throughout the facility, and they won’t have to quarantine after close contact with someone who tests positive,” the NFL told CNN last week.
According to the league, the lowest club had a 73% success rate.

The Raiders should focus on developing three young players.

The Raiders were able to establish a nice youthful core for Jon Gruden’s first few years back in the club after stockpiling first-round picks in recent rounds.
Gruden is now in the fourth year of his ten-year contract, and he needs to impress Mark Davis.
It’s been a long and arduous rebuilding process, and the team must make the playoffs in each of the next two seasons if Gruden’s contract is not to be considered a complete failure.
Fortunately for the Raiders, despite their lack of wins, they have developed an intriguing young core that will be the foundation for their success in the coming seasons – assuming Gruden can put it all together.
Daren Spencer (@DarenSpencer) August 10, 2021 Youth talent for Raiders regarded among top in NFL https://t.co/zdMlMvE6Fh via @theraiderswire — Daren Spencer (@DarenSpencer) August 10, 2021
#1 – Trevon Moehrig, Safety The Raiders have had a difficult time repairing their secondary, and they have made significant mistakes at safety.
Yet, by selecting Moehrig in the second round of the most recent draft, they appear to have struck gold.
Moehrig was drafted 43rd overall, but he possesses first-round talent and will be a key member of the Raiders’ defense once he on the field.
He’s the type of free safety that NFL teams have been vying for in recent months: he can sit in MOFC deep coverage and assist cornerbacks over the top.
Sooner rather than later, he’ll be a star.
Maxx Crosby, EDGE, Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders #2 – Maxx Crosby, EDGE Crosby has 17 sacks in his first two seasons with the Raiders and is looking like the actual star of the EDGE position drafted in 2019.
At the very least, he’s far superior to Clelin Ferrell, who was selected fourth overall but hasn’t lived up to the hype.
Crosby has been disruptive against the majority of offensive lines he’s faced in his first two seasons, and with Yannick Ngakoue taking some of the heat off him, he’ll be trying to return to double-digit sacks in 2021.
He possesses more than enough talent to accomplish this.
#3 – Henry Ruggs, WR So, Ruggs didn’t quite deliver what you’d expect from a first-round wide receiver.
Yet his spurts were exhilarating, and his talent has been well-known since his Alabama days, so there’s nothing to worry about.
Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards of the #Raiders are making great progress in training camp via @TheAthletic https://t.co/j5SRzmoRcW — Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) August 4, 2021 He’s about to take the next step in his career as Derek Carr’s top target.
His speed and quickness will provide a challenge to opposing teams, and a year of experience will undoubtedly benefit him in reaching the level that the Raiders anticipate of him.
