GLENDALE, AZ — Members of the public will not be allowed to attend the upcoming Arizona Cardinals game against the Los Angeles Rams due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the state, the team announced on Friday.
The Cardinals are scheduled to host the Rams at State Farm Stadium on Dec. 6, 2020.
The team said it made the decision "based on the latest COVID-19 information and guidance from the Arizona Department of Health Services," according to a statement.
