The National Football League announced that masks are mandatory for all fans who attend games this season. Not all teams are allowing fans into the stadium to catch the games, but some are.

Now, this only applies to teams that decide to let fans through the gates. Not all teams have decided what their plans are yet.

What does that mean for the Minnesota Vikings? It's time to get out your purple and gold face coverings.

According to WCCO, it looks like U.S. Bank Stadium will be allowing fans, "Ticket holders can choose to keep the 2020 ticket package or opt out for a credit given on next season. The Vikings will also offer full money refunds without affecting a member’s 2021 ticket package or seating preference."

They'll be limiting their capacity at games and following state and federal guidelines as well as rules set up by the NFL. So, yes, you will be required to wear a face covering if you attend a Minnesota Vikings game this year, or any other professional football this season.

I'm not sure what that means as far as consuming concessions, etc. We'll have to wait and see if those options are even going to be made available. There are still unknowns at this point as the NFL tries to navigate through the pandemic.

The news has very mixed reactions from fans on Twitter. You can read through the comments below.
