Packers to continue playing without fans

The Green Bay Packers say they will continue playing without fans at home games indefinitely due to the high levels of COVID-19 cases in the state of Wisconsin.

The Packers haven’t allowed spectators at any home games this season. Team officials announced Wednesday they also won’t admit fans to their next home game Nov. 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Packers officials said they won’t have fans at home games until COVID-19 rates in the area subside substantially.

The Packers plan to install face masks on the statues of former Packers coaches Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi in front of the Lambeau Field atrium Thursday to show support for front-line workers and encourage community members to wear masks.
