GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers will host roughly 250 first responders and health care workers at Saturday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers as a sign of appreciation for their work during the ongoing pandemic.

The frontline workers will be joined by family members and will sit in socially distanced pods.

“We are looking forward to welcoming this group of frontline workers and their families to the game on Saturday night. 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. “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.”

According to a news release, health care workers from the team’s partner, Bellin Health, and first responders who work on gamedays were invited to the game.
