Unvaccinated Andrew Wiggins can't play Warriors home games, NBA denies religious exemption request

Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins must get vaccinated if he wants to play home games this season. The San Francisco Department of Public Health ruled Friday that unvaccinated individuals cannot enter the Chase Center, even if they have a religious or medical exemption, according to San Francisco Gate.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health did not mention Wiggins by name, but did refer to "players" in its statement.

"At large and mega indoor events, all patrons 12 and older must be vaccinated at this time," the statement reads. "Under the current order, if unvaccinated, they cannot enter indoor areas regardless of the reason they are unvaccinated and cannot test out of this requirement even if they have a medical or religious exemption.
