New Laws Will Cause Issues Going Out To Watch Bills Games Now
It's going to be quite interesting and possibly, extremely annoying for Buffalo Bills fans who want to go to a bar or restaurant to watch football games.
Starting TONIGHT at 10pm, all bars and restaurants must shut down indoor dining by 10 p.m. Some businesses are allowed to stay open for take out only. Here are new guidelines and 'yellow zone' rules as of Friday morning in New York State after the increase of COVID-19 cases in New York State and, specifically, Western New York:
Full yellow-zone rules include:
-Houses of worship limited to 50% of their total capacity
-Mass gatherings limited to 25 people indoors and outdoors-
-Businesses can remain open
-Indoor and outdoor dining limited to a maximum of four people per table, down from 10
-Schools remain open, but must complete mandatory testing of 20% of students, teachers and staff at in-person buildings every week
Here is where the problem comes in.
The Buffalo Bills schedule is as follows:
November 11 @ Arizona 4:05 p.m.
November 29 - Chargers
December 7 @ San Fran 8:15 p.m.
December 13 - Pittsburgh 8:20 p.m.
December 20 @ Broncos TBD
December 28 @ Patriots 8:15 p.m.
January 3 - Dolphins 1 p.m.
There are THREE prime time games left for Buffalo Bills fans. The Patriots, Pittsburgh and San Francisco games all start after 8 p.m. which means, if you are going to a bar or restaurant to watch, you're going to have to leave at halftime about---even maybe before halftime because 10 p.m. curfew is now the law. In pure Buffalo fashion, we finally get a cool, prime schedule and we are thrown a curveball.
