GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- Breaking with a long-standing tradition, the Packers will not use facilities at St. Norbert College this year as part of the team's summer training camp.
"The Green Bay Packers will not be using their customary training camp arrangements at St. Norbert College this summer due to protocols put in place by the NFL that has clubs maximizing use of their own facilities to mitigate exposure to the pandemic," the team announced Wednesday.
In previous summer training camps, going back to the Lombardi era, team players had stayed at St. Norbert dorm rooms and eaten at the college’s commons.
This year, different living arrangements for Packers players are being finalized, the organization says. The Packers will use their facilities at Lambeau Field this year for their entire training camp operations, including practice, meals and meetings.
