The Green Bay Packers announced that no fans will be at Lambeau Field for the first two home games of the season.

The Packers said the decision was due to impacts to the community due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The first two regular-season games will only allow essential participants to "all the organization to place its full focus on the game itself."

"Lambeau Field will not be the same without our fans' energetic support in the stands," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy in a press release. "Given the extraordinary circumstances this year and the additional protocols in place, though, we determined it was best to take incremental steps to start the regular season. These two games will allow us to focus our attention on safely conducting games inside the stadium with all necessary participants.

The third home game for the Packers is on Nov. 1 against the Vikings. A decision on whether fans will be allowed to attend will be made at a later date.
