Sports activities and leisure venues are making knowledgeable selections about COVID measures in Omaha metro

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Companies have learned a lot over the past year and a half about how to work more safely in times of COVID and how to keep their doors and gates open better in the future.

Sports and entertainment venues like Werner Park have been hit particularly hard by their number one tenant, the Omaha Storm Chasers, who had to cancel the 2020 season. Plus canceled concerts and reduced capacity for the event they might host.

When this baseball season opened, fans wore masks and were socially distant. While many other contact reducing measures have been taken, from ticketless entry to online gaming programs.

Now that the Delta variant is causing COVID spikes and public safety concerns, President Martie Cordaro says they will seek an informed direction for the future.

“First and foremost, Sarpy-Cass health. I don’t look to politicians, but to the directors of health, the medical professionals we work with, primarily Nebraska Medicine, CHI Health, Ortho Nebraska and any number of our partners we work with, ”Cordaro said.

The stadium is also home to Union Omaha professional football, as well as concerts and other events throughout the year.
