New York Governor Andrew Cuomo revealed Wednesday the Buffalo Bills have submitted a plan to include 6700 fans inside Bills Stadium for upcoming playoff games. The plan is currently being reviewed by the state.
The plan would involve strict enforcement of masking and social distancing guidelines.
State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker says the plan would be the first of its kind and also raised concerns about the potential spread that could occur at tailgating events surrounding the game.
“We would like to do it,” said Cuomo but the plan is not approved or finalized.
Health commissioner Howard Zucker says fans would have to have proof of negative test prior to entering. State will work with team and do contact tracing afterwards. He calls it a "demonstration project".
