In a statement to Rolling Stone, MTV said, “The health and safety of artists, fans, staff and partners remain the number one priority, and MTV and Barclays Center are working closely with state and local officials to implement best practices in order to safely bring together music fans from around the globe.”
The current safety guidelines of the center requires those non-vaccinated to wear masks at all times except when eating and Barclays also ask vaccinated patrons to do same except when seated in the “vaccinated-only” section.
