Football fans across the country continue to worry about how the pandemic will affect the upcoming season. And the league’s commissioner Roger Goodell has written a letter to fans detailing the steps they’re taking to ensure the safety of all involved.
Here are two key takeaways from the letter:
1.) “Every step of the way, our focus has been on the safety of players, coaches, personnel, fans and our communities. Our planning has followed the lead of medical experts and public health officials, including the CDC, the White House Task Force, governors and state health officials. As we have developed our 2020 playbook for the return of football, safety continues to be our first priority; that commitment will remain paramount as players return to the field.”
2.) “State and local health guidelines will help determine whether fans will attend the games. These adjustments are necessary to reduce the risk for everyone involved.”
