There will be fewer players, but there will be a game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers tonight. A number of NFL reports say the league is not going to cancel or move tonight’s game in California. The decision comes as four San Francisco players tested positive for the coronavirus yesterday. At least three Packers have also tested positive. Kickoff is set for 7:20 tonight.
When it comes to game days, plan on watching the Packers from home this season.
The team yesterday said it is not going to allow fans back into Lambeau Field until the coronavirus is under control. And that could mean there won’t be fans in the stands for the rest of the year. Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy yesterday said it is ‘critical’ that the Packers do what they can to slow the spread of the virus. Murphy had hoped to be able to have fans back this month, but says there must be ‘significant improvement’ in Wisconsin’s coronavirus numbers before that can happen.
