NFL Might Ask Fans To Sign A COVID-19 Waiver To Attend Games This Season

The NFL is considering the possibility of recommending teams as a best practice that fans be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver to attend games this season, according to Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic.

By signing the waiver, fans would agree not to hold the NFL responsible if they were to test positive for COVID-19 while attending a game. 

The waiver proposal is likely to be sent to clubs by next week. 

The league remains optimistic that there will be a season in 2020. Teams are preparing for all scenarios, from no fans to nearly full stadiums. 

The NFL has already decided that each team will be allowed to set its own stadium capacity. Teams will be asked to set their capacity based on local health protocols and policies. 

According to the report, other proposals include asking fans to wear masks and having every stadium go cashless.

Signing a waiver to attend a stadium was done recently by President Trump. During a rally in Tulsa on June 20, the Trump campaign required all attendees to sign a waiver.
