Update - Sep. 9, 2021
By order of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Board of Health, the City of Springfield will implement a citywide mask mandate policy, regardless of vaccination status for those over the age of two years old, effective Monday, September 13, 2021 and will remain in effect until November 1, 2021, unless otherwise amended or rescinded.
The mask mandate is for all public places including municipal buildings, private businesses, and public gatherings and events to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
Before the press conference and prior meetings with Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and HHS Commissioner Caulton-Harris, early this morning Dr. Keroack and Dr. Roose met with members of the business community and the Economic Development Council to discuss this coming mandate.  Also, Mayor Sarno and HHS Commissioner Caulton-Harris met with our Springfield Thunderbirds Hockey ownership group.  Mayor Sarno appreciates their cooperation and understanding and he looks forward to attending their upcoming season opener as a season ticket holder.  “At this time, we are only mandating that people wear a mask or face covering.  We are not imposing any capacity limitations,” Mayor Sarno said.  

At this current time, the Springfield Thunderbirds are preparing to welcome fans back to the MassMutual Center for the 2021-22 hockey season. The Thunderbirds are working closely with local and state officials in determining COVID-19 protocols and guidelines. Please note all information is subject to change and will be communicated as soon as possible.


At all times, the Thunderbirds and the MassMutual Center will be in compliance with the state and local guidelines surrounding social distancing, number of persons permitted at a gathering, mask laws, and more.
