New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that Bills Stadium will be open to a limited number of fans for the Buffalo Bills playoff game. Bills games had been closed to fans for the entire 2020 regular season as part of New York state’s COVID-19 protocols regarding professional sports.
The plan allows for 6,772 fans, with attendees needing to register a negative COVID-19 test before being granted entrance. The team will work with the state’s Department of Health to conduct contact tracing afterward.
Fans will be socially distanced throughout the stadium, with masks required at all times. Fans who fail to comply will be ejected.
More help could be on the way to Buffalo for the playoffs: Former Texans and Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is visiting the Bills, per source. Stills needs to pass through protocols, but optimism the deal gets done.
