Lambeau continues hold on hosting fans, Vince and Curly statues receive face masks

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Packers will continue to play in an empty stadium until further notice.

The team announced they will continue their indefinite hold on hosting fans at Lambeau Field.

The decision was made due to the high levels of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Wisconsin and the Green Bay area.

“As evidenced by the sustained increase in cases in our community, we all need to work together to contain the virus,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “Our players would love to have fans in the stands at Lambeau Field, but it is critical for the safety of our community that we all do whatever we can to stop the virus.

The statues of Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi outside the stadium received face masks Thursday, Nov. 5, to encourage fans to mask up, practice social distancing and take other precautions to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
