In a truly disheartening statement, the Miami Dolphins have stated that there will be no tailgating during the regular season.
The team indicates that they’re prepared to play with or without spectators this season, but they will not allow fans to attend their home preseason game or training camp.
The changes were made because of the coronavirus and announced Thursday.
Stadium capacity for regular-season games will be determined later. Social distancing will be required if spectators are allowed, and fans and stadium employees will be required to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
“Things are changing week to week, and we are still more than two months away from our first scheduled regular-season home game,” Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel said in a statement. “So we’ll wait and work with local authorities, and make the determination about fans or no fans based on the data as we get closer. … We’re ready for any scenario.”
