COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) — Gov. Mike DeWine announced a variance to the state’s sport order Saturday, allowing the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals to have a total of up to 6000 spectators at two home games.
The variance will allow no more than 1500 spectators on each side of the stadium. Fans must enter a designated entrance for their ticket and masks are required.
The games included in the variance are:
- Sept. 17: Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns
- Sept. 27: Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns
- Oct. 4: Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals
- Oct. 25: Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals
“This year will certainly be different, but both the Browns and the Bengals have worked exceedingly hard and have made extensive preparations to welcome a limited number of fans to their stadiums safely,” said DeWine. “These very thorough plans and safety precautions warrant a two-game trial to try and accommodate fans, at reduced capacities with social distancing and masks.”
