New York Yankees: Yankee Stadium Becomes First Sports Venue in the World to Achieve WELL Health-Safety Rating

New York Yankees: Yankee Stadium Becomes First Sports Venue in the World to Achieve WELL Health-Safety Rating | Pandemic Safe Buildings | Scoop.it
The rating requirements, which have been fulfilled by the club, serve as a blueprint for best operating procedures to help combat COVID-19, while also providing world-class standards for overall health and safety.
Lorien Pratt's insight:

To maximize pandemic safety, we need to go beyond general-purpose government guidelines to building-specific assessments and remediation.

The International Well Building Institute (IWBI) now assesses the COVID safety of buildings; the public can be reassured by a building that displays the WELL certification logo that it has been assessed rigorously.

And Yankee Stadium has got one. Go Yankees!
