Packers Facebook

The Green Bay Packers will honor workers who have been on the frontlines caring for coronavirus patients.

The team says it will welcome about 250 health care employees, first responders and their families to Lambeau Field for Saturday night's game against the Carolina Panthers.

The group will join Packers employees and their families at the game.

The spectators will continue to follow safety protocols set by the team.

The Packers say they continue to take a cautious approach by not allowing a large number of ticketed fans, citing ongoing high coronavirus rates.
