State health officials advise against fans at Lambeau Field this season

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- State health officials say the Packers should not allow fans into Lambeau this season.

"We are not encouraging mass gatherings," said Andrea Palm, Secretary-Designee, Wisconsin Department of Health Services. "A concert, a stadium event, these are considered mass gatherings, and it's hard to socially distance in a scenario like that."

CBS 58's Victor Jacobo asked if fans should be allowed during the state's coronavirus briefing Thursday, Aug. 13.

DHS Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm discouraged it.

The Packers have already announced fans won't be allowed at their first two home games this year.
