There’s positive news: if you were dreaming of attending the Buffalo Bills home playoff game in January, you may just get your wish. Now for the bad news: Governor Andrew Cuomo is working on a plan that will allow just 6,700 fans into the game. Those fans will be tested for COVID prior to the game and then contact traced afterward.
As AFC East champions, the Bills are guaranteed at least one home game in January.
“Cuomo says the Department of Health is working on a plan that would allow people to attend the Buffalo Bills playoff game, rapid test them prior to going to the game, and then contact trace after the game,” Spectrum News reporter Nick Reisman wrote on Twitter. “The move is meant to be a prototype for how such events can be held.”
New York State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker says the Bills will control the entry and exiting of fans and that masks will be required. One sticking point, according to Reisman, is how to handle Bills fans and their partying before the game. A plan for that has yet to be determined.
Cuomo does appear to acknowledge that rules will need to be changed to allow restaurants and events to stay open as the vaccines roll out.
“We can’t go through nine months with restaurants shut. We have to come up with a smarter way to do this,” he said Wednesday.

Oh goody. His last plan cost tens of thousand seniors in nursing homes their lives!
How about just letting people choose whether or not the want to attend? You know, freedom?
The fact Cuomo hasn’t been impeached for all his buffoonery goes to show how deep in the swamp NYC is.
I think it speaks more how people just roll over and let the government do what they want to them.
