GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — The Green Bay Packers may not be hosting fans this year, but 250 front line workers were able to watch El Paso’s own Aaron Jones and the Packers defeat the Carolina Panthers.

The NFL organization invited the additional fans, including health care professionals and first responders, to Saturday night’s game. The individuals were selected employees of Bellin Health and other game day public safety partners.

“We are so thankful and appreciative of all they have done for our community during this challenging time,” Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement.

The group sat in social distanced pods and follow all of Lambeau Field’s Covid-19 safety protocols, along with the other Packers’ invited employees and their immediate families.

“While we cannot invite large numbers of these special guests due to the pandemic, we want to express our community’s collective appreciation for all their great work,” Murphy said.

The Packers have been playing in an empty stadium for their 2020 season, and organization officials said that the fan approach for future playoff games has not yet been decided.
