*Staging Area for media/press: Members of the media and press will enter the Field of Dreams through the Northwest gate on Motel Boulevard. All media and press personnel must provide a press pass/station identification at the gate if they are not in a marked vehicle. Media will park and set-up cameras in the West Parking lot on the Southwest side of the stadium between gates 1-3.
*Media/press: All media must limit crews to no more than two people, preferably one from each organization. Media members may alternate.
* Everyone must follow health and social distancing guidelines from the state. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Keeping individuals at least 6 feet apart is ideal based on what is known about COVID-19 http://las-cruces.org/AlertCenter.aspx.
