The Mavericks will soon lift their requirement that fans show either proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within 48 hours to attend home games.

As the daily average case count in Dallas County remains below 500, which it reached last week, the Mavericks will ease their health and safety protocol for fans, Mark Cuban told The Dallas Morning News.

If the metric again surpasses 500 — which it did when the Mavericks enacted their original vaccination and negative test rules in late September — then Cuban said the team will reinstate the requirements.

The change, however, won’t take effect by Dallas’ regular-season home opener Tuesday night against the Rockets.

Cuban said the Mavericks are still working to create sections — whether by ticket location or in suites — that would help decrease potential COVID-19 exposure to cancer patients or immunocompromised individuals who attend games. Masks will still be required for fans 2 and older when not actively eating or drinking, in accordance with the Dallas County order.

The Mavericks will make a formal announcement when their vaccination and testing requirements are lifted.
