Fans in attendance at NFL games in 2020 will be required to masks, the league announced on Wednesday.

Several teams have either barred fans or indicated they are considering similar measures, but for those who have not, the spectators will be required to wear facial coverings.

The announcement came in a tweet and photo from NFL PR executive Brian McCarthy.

Earlier this week, the Giants and Jets ruled out hosting fans at MetLife Stadium for their 2020 home games until further notice, in accordance with limitations on large gatherings recently announced by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. The Los Angeles Rams similarly said they would have limited or no capacity in their debut season at SoFi Stadium, also home to the Los Angeles Chargers. The newly relocated Las Vegas Raiders also suggested they were considering a no-fan policy for the season.

Other teams, such as the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins have revealed various plans for hosting fans at limited capacity.
