WSU Athletics Announces Procedures for Vaccine Verification at Gesa Field
PULLMAN – Washington State Athletics, in alignment with our football partners in the State of Washington, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Washington Huskies, will begin implementation of the new gameday vaccination verification procedures at Gesa Field starting with WSU's home football game against Oregon State on Oct. 9.
All guests 12 years of age and older attending Cougar Football games will need to be verified by providing proof of vaccination or proof of an FDA-approved negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of the event. Fans under 12 years of age are exempt from providing proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
On game day, fans can be verified before the game by showing proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test at various kiosk locations outside of Gesa Field. Gameday verification will be available at the Compton Union Building (CUB), Beasley Coliseum, Cougville, and the four guest service kiosks positioned at the perimeter of the stadium beginning three hours prior to kickoff. These stations will close at kickoff. At that time, all verifications will be done at the gate.
Guests who do not get verified before heading into the stadium will be screened at the gates. However, all guests are highly encouraged to get verified with a stamp before approaching the stadium gates. There will be express lanes for those that have been verified at Gates, A, B, F, I, and the Premium Seating Entrance.
Earlier this month, Cougar Athletics mandated masks for all fans in attendance at Gesa Field, regardless of vaccination status. This included both indoor and outdoor seating at all times unless actively eating or drinking. That mandate remains in effect going forward.
