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.
