Cuomo on Bills Fans at Airport: Large Gatherings are a Concern
The Bills are 11-3 and have clinched the AFC East title, which means they will host a playoff game for the first time in 25 years, but the question of whether or not fans will be allowed back inside the stadium for that game is still one that is yet to be answered.
Governor Andrew Cuomo said last week he would love for fans to be allowed back in the stadium for the playoffs, however, the infection rate in Western New York needs to be under control and the state and health department would need to come up with the right plan.
Governor Cuomo also said on Sunday that the New York State's Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker would be the one determining whether or not fans would be allowed back inside the stadium.
The governor also made comments regarding the large number of Bills fans that gathered at the Buffalo airport to welcome back the Bills from Denver early Sunday morning.
“Large gatherings should concern everyone, you know if you’re wearing masks and there’s some social distancing it’s better, but large gatherings, of course, are a concern.”
Dr. Zucker said the stadium isn't the problem, since there's enough seating to spread everyone out, but it's the tailgating aspect.
We will see what Dr. Zucker and the state decide.
