Miami Dolphins Unveil Plan on How They’ll Host Fans Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

Hard Rock Stadium

In an effort to address concerns about fans attending Miami Dolphins home games during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel went on national television to outline the team’s plans.

Garfinkel appeared on ABC’s weekday morning program “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, with images presented on what potential new entrances will look like at Hard Rock Stadium. In addition, the team’s social distancing strategies were explained.

“We would have times to come in for security at different gates, so people would be separated out in terms of when they enter the stadium,” Garfinkel said.

“We would exit the stadium much like a church environment or something where each row exists so people aren’t filing out all at the same time in a hurry.”

Other steps include using colored spots on the ground leading to entrance gates, with proper social distancing in place.

Fans attending Dolphins games would be required to wear masks and order food from their seats. In the latter case, the fans would pick up their food in take-out fashion at the concession stand, rather than standing in line.

One aspect that would be drastically affected would be the overall attendance, where a limit of 15,000 (in a stadium with a capacity of 65,326) would again allow for proper social distancing.
