No masks will be required in waiting areas such as the FedEx Great Hall or the upper and lower seat pans, but fans are strongly advised to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking regardless of vaccination status.
The Steelers say fans will not be asked to provide evidence of COVID-19 vaccination to enter, but unvaccinated fans are asked to wear a mask at all times.
The Steelers will face the Lions on Saturday at 7:30 pm
