Two NFL teams have announced plans for their fans and COVID vaccination status. The Las Vegas Raiders said they’ll require all fans at home games to show proof of vaccination or to get vaccinated at the stadium prior to the game.

Those Raiders fans who are vaccinated will not have to wear masks either, despite the fact the vaccine does not prevent anyone from contracting the virus.

Fans who get vaccinated at the game can attend, but they’ll have to wear a face covering.

The New Orleans Saints will ask fans to show proof of a vaccine or a negative COVID test from the previous 72 hours. Those fans will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
