Specific fan attendance guidelines will likely be different in all 32 home stadiums, with some states not even allowing fans to attend at all, but the NFL has announced that if fans are allowed to attend games this year they must wear a face covering to do so.

While the world is still navigating through the coronavirus pandemic, sports has been trying to get back to some sort of normalcy these last few weeks, and with the NFL opening training camps in full on July 28 and with them set on opening the regular season on time, they are trying to finalize their COVID-19 plan.

We’ve already seen some guidelines laid out by the league, and at some point a full playbook for handling testing, quarantine, games, practices, and the media during the 2020 season will be made available to every team.
