SUtter HEalth Park GRADUATION CEREMONY FAQs
Congratulations Class of 2021!
Below you will find details to help you prepare for a successful day out at the ballpark!
What are various COVID protocol guidelines that will be implemented?
Mobile Ticketing/Physical Distancing: Tickets will be distributed electronically to each graduate prior to the ceremony. The graduate will then have the opportunity to transfer the mobile tickets to his/her family members that will be in attendance. Each set of tickets will be set up in a “pod” physically distanced from the next pod. All pods must be of members of the same household, and in-state attendees only. Upon entry, family members will pull up their mobile device to scan. Guests are encouraged to maintain a 6-ft distance between themselves and anyone outside of their household beginning at gate entrance line and once inside the stadium. Congregating is discouraged.
Face Coverings: Use of face coverings is mandatory throughout the stadium in all settings for anyone 2 years and older. Masks must be covering the nose and mouth at all times unless actively eating or drinking in assigned seats. Sutter Health Park will encourage all guests and employees to bring and wear an appropriate face covering while inside the ballpark.
Cashless Facility: Sutter Health Park and the parking lots it operates will not accept cash. Credit/Debit card, and other forms of electronic payment will only be accepted.
Food and Beverage Options: Eating and drinking will be permitted in assigned seats only. Concourse concessions will be open for food and beverage purchase
Clear Bag Policy: For the safety of our security staff and guests, to avoid touching attendees’ personal items, Sutter Health Park is enforcing a small clear bag policy and ask guests to open their own bags for inspection. If guests come with a bag that is not clear, they will be asked to bring it back to their vehicle. All guests will pass through our metal detector upon entry as well. See below for a visual on which clear bags will be permitted.

TRANSFERRING TICKETS (graduate step)
Transferring your tickets can be done on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
Not all of your guests will need to have an individual ticket if arriving together. You may send all tickets to one person if everyone within your pod of tickets will be coming through the gates together. That one person will have all tickets to scroll through for scanning at the gates.
If guests are arriving separately, you will want to send to each person that arrives individually. Steps to transfer tickets, below.
ACCEPTING TRANSFERRED TICKETS (graduate’s guests’ step)
Accepting tickets can be done on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Though, it is recommended to accept tickets using a mobile phone to easily and quickly add them to mobile wallet at the time of acceptance.
Once tickets have been transferred, the guest will receive an email from email@example.com
By accepting transferred tickets, guests attest that each person receiving a ticket in their designated pod are of the same household, and residents of California.
Once you have accepted your tickets, be sure to add each of them to your mobile wallet for quick and easy entrance into the stadium the day of the ceremony. (This avoids the need to log-in through this same process the day of the event to access your tickets)
