VIDEO: An Inside Look At The Patriots Preparing For An NFL Season During COVID-19David Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

By now it’s pretty clear the 2020 NFL season will be something never seen before as teams across the league take the necessary precautions to protect their players and fans during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

On Monday, the Patriots released a mini-documentary over their social media channels providing a behind-the-scenes look at just how they are preparing to keep everyone at the team facilities safe and healthy.

Take a look at the changes for yourself in the link below.

As of this posting, the Patriots and the Massachusetts Reopening Advisory Board announced on August 18th, there will be no fans at Gillette Stadium the entirety of September.

“Gillette Stadium fully supports the state’s position and this decision in the interest of public safety,” the statement read. “We would have welcomed the opportunity to host fans in August and September, but are hopeful to do so later in the season. We greatly appreciate the time and support the Massachusetts Reopening Advisory Board has provided throughout this process and respect their efforts as they continue to navigate the state’s phased reopening.”

The Patriots will have six remaining home games October through December that as of this time fan attendance remains unknown, but the team remains hopeful fans in some form can go.

“Gillette Stadium will continue its preparations to safely host fans later this fall and will rely on guidance from the Massachusetts Reopening Advisory Board and our team of independent experts,” the statement also said. “The health and safety of our players, coaches, staff, fans and surrounding community has and will continue to lead our efforts.”
