Nebraska Football Fan Day is set for this evening and the Nebraska athletic department has put some health and safety guidelines in place.  The event is today from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. 

NU says the new recommendations are a result of a recent rise of COVID-19 cases in the Lincoln area.  Fans are encouraged to maintain social distancing whenever possible.  Those attending should not gather near the stadium gates until shortly before 5:30 p.m.  It’s recommended that unvaccinated people and any individuals with underlying health conditions wear a mask.  And all fans are encouraged to wear a mask when in large crowds and social distancing is not possible. 

Fans are also encouraged to take necessary precautions due to the heat advisory for Lincoln today: water may be brought into the event and it will also be available for purchase.
