The team stated in a press release that they are “encouraging the community to do its part in keeping each other safe” and said they may adjust the policy depending on the health situation in upcoming weeks and months. Following Sunday’s home game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Broncos next home games will happen on Nov. 28, Dec. 12, Dec. 19 and Jan. 9.
