LSU will allow fans in the stands during home games

Baton Rouge- LSU have decided to let 25% of their fans attend home games, but they have to practice protocol.

Fans are welcome to attend football games during the season, but they will be required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Tailgates are prohibited, but the school will allow some gatherings by families' vehicles.

"This plan focuses on the health and safety of all those attending LSU football games, from the fans to the team to the workers," Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a statement. "By reducing the capacity and taking a year off from tailgating, which puts LSU in line with other SEC schools, the plan allows for fans to be socially distanced in Death Valley. I encourage the Tiger faithful to adhere to these guidelines and to act responsibly, as there is still a lot of COVID in Louisiana.

LSU holds around 100,200 fans, but they are reducing it to allow close to 25,000 fans. As of right now, COVID-19 cases have increased around the globe, so it will be interesting to see how long LSU will have that many people at one time in the stands. LSU will begin its home opener September 26 against Mississippi State.
