“Effective immediately, the Pirates will no longer require guests who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear a face mask while at PNC Park. Guests who are not yet fully vaccinated against COVID19 must continue to wear a face mask while at PNC Park, as required by the Pennsylvania Department of Health,” the Pirates wrote on Friday.
