The National Football League is considering the possibility of recommending teams have fans be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver to attend games this season, according to Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic.
The potential waiver “likely” will be forwarded to teams by the middle of next week.
“It is probably something you do electronically, just trying to figure out the operational challenges associated with waivers,” an unnamed source told Kaplan. “Just have to work out how best to do that.”
Once signed, fans would essentially be agreeing to not hold the NFL responsible if they were to test positive for COVID-19 while attending a game.
The proposals will also ask that fans wear masks and have stadiums go completely cashless.
President Trump recently showed how it’s done when he required all attendees to his Tulsa rally to sign a waiver.
