Face coverings are no longer required at Dell Diamond in Round Rock following an updated health and safety policy from Major League Baseball on May 13.
The league made the decision to defer face covering mandates to local authorities. Because of the statewide mask mandate lift in March, Dell Diamond has lifted the mandate in its facility, which applies to Round Rock Express games.
The Express held its opening day game on May 6 against the Oklahoma City dodgers. The team plays at Dell Diamond against the Sugar Land Skeeters May 13, the first game without the mask requirement. For more information on the Round Rock Express game schedule, visit their website.
