09/15/2020- The Pack is back and while that’s good news for NFL fans, this season will bring big changes to those used to cheering on the green and gold in person. The Packers have already announced fans will not be allowed to attend any games at Lambeau Field until at least November due to COVID-19 concerns, which has many people opting to host or attend “homegating” parties instead. Registered Dietitian Carrie Taicher with Aurora BayCare Medical Center has some tips for precautions you can take to keep these celebrations safe.
No football party is complete without food, but Taicher warns that communal meals can quickly become a contamination station for the coronavirus.
Taicher also says, in instances where social distancing isn’t possible or enforced at some of these “homegating” parties, a fan’s best bet to stay healthy this football season may be to attend the celebration virtually instead.
