WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza received approval today from Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to reopen the building to a limited number of fans for the remainder of the 2021 American Hockey League season.
The Penguins have targeted Friday, Mar. 19 as the first game to welcome fans back to the arena. This date gives the arena staff ample time to complete updates aimed at giving visitors the safest experience possible when attending games.

Fans attending games will be required to adhere to social distancing protocols while inside the arena, and mask wearing will be mandatory for all fans over the age of two. Additional safety protocols will be announced prior to the first game.
