NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - There were no new positive COVID-19 cases, so the rescheduled game between the Tennessee Titans and the Buffalo Bills will be played on Tuesday night.

NFL Reporter Tom Pelissero said his sources told him there were no new cases after a round of testing on Monday. 

Tuesday's game will be at Nissan Stadium, which will only be filled to 12.5 percent capacity. 

Fans attending the game will have to follow the Safe Stadium Plan laid out by the Titans. The plan includes the following items: 

  • Socially-distant seating pods accommodating parties of one to a maximum of six people
  • Mobile ticketing and parking, to eliminate physical contact while scanning passes
  • Mandatory face coverings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking
  • Over 400 hand sanitizing stations throughout the stadium
  • Individually-wrapped food items at concession stands
  • Elimination of all smoking and vaping areas in the facility
  • Health screenings and personal protective equipment for all Nissan Stadium employees
  • A comprehensive cleaning plan during events for bathrooms and near concession areas

The team had closed their facility last week and reschedule their game against the Bills, due to positive cases.

On Sunday, another staffer tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total to 24 within the organization over the last 18 days.

Titans General Manager Jon Robinson talked to the media on Monday for the first time since the outbreak with the team. He maintains his organization was diligent about safety protocols throughout.

Local cancer survivors Emma Sweat of Cookeville, Tamela Krompic of Gallatin, Jennifer Gray of Madison, Corina Coulas of Goodlettsville and Amy Perry of Murfreesboro will be honored during the game.
