GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Once again, the Green Bay Packers are showing their appreciation for frontline workers by hosting about 450 of them at Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

This comes after the Packers hosted nearly 250 frontline workers at last week's game.

The approximately 450 frontline workers and their household families will sit in socially distanced pods at Lambeau Field this Sunday. The Packers said in a statement the group will include healthcare workers from the Packers’ healthcare partner, Bellin Health, as well as workers from other healthcare systems in the area.

The Packers said this allows the organization to recognize frontline workers and their families for their dedication and sacrifices during the pandemic.

This group is attending in addition to the Packers’ invited employees and their immediate families, who have also been in attendance at previous games.

The Packers are still not allowing other ticketed fans into the stadium as a precaution against COVID-19. The team says the approach to future home playoff game(s) will be decided at a later date.
