All fans attending NFL games during the 2020 season must wear face coverings, the league announced Wednesday.

The NFL is allowing each team to determine its own policy regarding attendance in accordance with local COVID-19 guidelines.

A handful of individual clubs have already barred fans from attending home contests, including the New York Jets and New York Giants. Los Angeles Rams fans could also be excluded from the debut season of SoFi Stadium.

Other franchises, such as the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens, have set various capacity limits for their stadiums should fans be permitted to attend.

The NFL previously stated it is planning to play in front of fans and start the season on time despite the pandemic, though it's in the process of creating multiple contingency plans.

It's been estimated that the league could lose $3 billion if the entire regular season and playoffs are played without fans in attendance.
