Lambeau limits gameday attendance to family of Packers employees for remainder of regular season
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- For the remainder of the 2020 NFL regular season, game attendees at Lambeau Field will be limited to Packers employees and their household families, the organization announced Tuesday.
Citing high COVID-19 infection rates in Wisconsin and concerns about the virus spreading during the holiday season, the organization determined it safest to maintain the current level of attendance and not introduce a wider audience of ticketed fans.
“While our community and state currently are seeing a promising trend in the infection rates, we made the decision, along with our health care and public health partners, to continue hosting only the group of employees and their families,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
“As always, the health and safety of our community, players and fans is our top priority. We appreciate the continued guidance from Bellin Health and the Brown County Public Health Department for advising us and, importantly, for the work they are doing to battle COVID. We are extremely proud of how seriously our players and employees have taken the virus and of the steps they have taken to avoid contracting it and infecting others. While Lambeau Field feels very different this year, we look forward to giving our fans watching from home some more great wins. We can’t wait to see packed stands again next season.”
The approach to any potential home playoff games will be decided at a later date.
