The Virginia Department of Health and COVIDWISE, the state’s free coronavirus exposure notification app, will partner for several events focusing on preventative measures — including a mobile vaccination site — during the Washington Football Team’s training camp this week in Richmond.
The health department and the team have partnered to provide a number of interactive events and educational resources to fans at training camp, including several events focusing on honoring the state’s front-line and health care workers. The camp takes place at the Bons Secours Training Center from Tuesday to Saturday.
Highlighted daily events include Tuesday’s Healthcare Heroes Combine, where 100 health care workers will test their football skills against Washington Football Team alumni. On Wednesday, Frontline Heroes Day will give 100 front-line workers a VIP experience during the first morning practice of training camp and other front-line workers who show proof of vaccination will have a 20% discount at the team store.
From Wednesday to Saturday, the health department will host a mobile vaccination site for anyone who hasn’t received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Fans who are vaccinated at training camp will be entered into a contest to win two free tickets and a parking pass to WFT’s season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Additionally, the health department will have a “Safety Zone” tent and numerous handwashing stations at training camp.
Training camp practice sessions are free and open to the public. Fans can register for Free Fan Passes to each training camp day by visiting the Washington Football Team website. Once registered, fans can access their Free Fan Passes through the team’s mobile app.
