(Green Bay) Crowd sizes will be limited to the final games of the Green Bay Packers season at Lambeau Field, and only team employees and family members will have access.
The team said the decision was made because of the steady rise in the number of coronavirus cases in Brown County, and throughout Wisconsin. The Packers are also concerned about the possibility of another wave hitting them head-on as the holiday season approaches.
Packers President and COO Mark Murphy said “the health and safety of our community, players and spectators is our top priority.”
WLUK-TV reported that the Packers have allowed around 500 employees and relatives to attend their last two home games, on November 29 and last Sunday.
The Packers still have two home games to play in the regular season. They will host the Carolina Panthers on December 19, and the Tennessee Titans on December 27.
The Wisconsin team added that their plan for a possible Lambeau Field playoff game will be revealed later.
