Pennsylvania's Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine announced there would be no fans allowed inside Heinz Field's Stadium. No word has been heard on how long this would last since this announcement was made.
“The governor strongly feels and I strongly recommend that we do not put people at risk in terms of putting them together in congregant settings. So we have a 250 person outdoor limit, so there will be no fans.”
The Steelers already have had one game at Heinz Field without fans and are set to host another game this Sunday against the Texans. Burt Lauten the Steelers Director of Communications has put out a statement that say they're hopeful there can be fans for the October 11th game at Heinz Field against the Eagles.
“As we previously announced, we will not have any fans at our home games in September. However, we remain optimistic about hosting a limited amount of fans at Heinz Field beginning with our game against the Philadelphia Eagles on October 11.”
Steelers will require masks if they allow fans inside the staidum which was stated in July. Stay tuned because once it is announced tickets are expected to be sold quite quickly.
