In an effort to do their part in social distancing, the Green Bay Packers have decided to close Lambeau Field and Titletown for two weeks beginning today. The decision was made out of an abundance of caution to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
The closure will apply to all Lambeau Field Atrium businesses, including the Packers Pro Shop, Packers Hall of Fame and 1919 Kitchen & Tap, as well as all team-run public activities in Titletown, including the playground and 46 below.
The team will continue to monitor the situation and reassess conditions near the end of this two-week window.
The Packers are also suspending business-related air travel for their employees, including coaches and scouts.
Lambeau Field and Titletown will only have critical staff in place for non-public operations of the facilities, and the majority of other Packers personnel are required to work remotely.
Go Pack Go!
