As a collective show of the community's appreciation, the Green Bay Packers will again host frontline workers, including healthcare professionals and first responders, at Sunday night's game against the Tennessee Titans.

This invited group, which includes approximately 450 frontline workers and their household families, will sit in socially distanced pods, in compliance with Lambeau Field's COVID-19 protocols. Many of these individuals have continued their essential work taking care of the community and keeping it safe during the pandemic.

The group will include healthcare workers from the Packers' healthcare partner, Bellin Health, as well as workers from other healthcare systems in the area. The Packers have also invited gameday public safety partners who have team members in these sectors to identify and invite them to the game. This group is attending in addition to the Packers' invited employees and their immediate families who will be present at the game.

Due to the ongoing high infection rates, the team continues its cautious approach by not introducing a wider audience of ticketed fans at this time. Inviting this additional group of limited household pods continues adherence to protocols that have been successfully utilized for recent home games and allows the organization to recognize frontline workers and their families for their dedication and sacrifices. The approach to future home playoff game(s) will be decided at a later date.
