The big ballpark in the Bronx became the first professional sports venue to become WELL Heath-Safety certified, according to the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), a designation that aims to provide a blueprint for safe operations during the pandemic. 

The initiative, launched in June by the IWBI, was developed with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among others. The WELL Health-Safety Rating provides operational policies, maintenance protocols, emergency plans and stakeholder engagement strategies to help organizations prepare and maintain their spaces for re-entry in a post COVID-19 environment.
