Green Bay (OnFocus) – The Green Bay Packers say any plans to have fans for home games this season are on indefinite hold due to high COVID-19 rates in the area.
The Packers’ next home game is November 1, when they host the Minnesota Vikings.
“We are very concerned with the rate of infection in our area,” Packers CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement. “We are trending in the wrong direction in terms of hospitalization and positive cases, and based on recommendations from community health-care and public health officials, hosting fans at the stadium for games is not advisable at this time.”
