New England Patriots 2020 Attendance Policy
UPDATE: On August 20th it was announced that there would be no fans allowed at Gillette Stadium through September. In the announcement they also stated that they "will continue its preparations to safely host fans later this fall and will rely on guidance from the Massachusetts Reopening Advisory Board and our team of independent experts."
On July 14th, the Patriots announced that if fans are allowed at Gillette Stadium this season, it will be with limited capacity and fans will have to wear face coverings. Here's more from the team's announcement:
Pending state and local approval, should Gillette Stadium be allowed to have fans in the stands this season, it is expected to host about 20 percent of its total capacity. Ticketed parties will be asked to maintain physical distancing of at least six feet from other parties, tickets will be arranged in blocks of 10 seats or less, and the first eight rows of stadium seats will not be used. Additionally, face coverings will be required at all times inside the stadium to keep all attendees safe.
Patriots Putnam Club and Season Ticket Members will have the first opportunity to purchase individual game tickets if fans are allowed, and any remaining ticket inventory will go on-sale to the general public once the member process is complete.
It was also announced that parking for all Patriots home games this season will be free, walk up purchases will be suspended, and all tickets this season would be mobile entry.

Potential Covid-19 Impact On 2020 NFL Schedule
While the schedule release is a much-needed dose of exciting news for all football fans, there are some major questions marks heading into the 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While teams know what teams they'll play, that's about all they know. Whether or not the games happen and if fans are able to attend will depend on how the virus is managed over the next 2-3 months. The league has already canceled all of its International Series games, and the league is rightly considering all possible scenarios.
Based on the varying levels of infection in each NFL city and state, it's possible that some teams may be able to host fans at a reduced capacity while others may not. The Dolphins announced a preliminary plan last week, with a 25% of capacity goal. Based on the below NFL Covid-19 Safety Index, the Dolphins fall within the low-risk category, just barely.
To create the Safety Index, we compared the active cases in each city or state to the national average and then discounted that product by Rt. Rt is a measure of how fast the virus is spreading in each city and state, most easily tracked through Rt.live.
