Proof Of Vaccination Policy Prompts Petition From Bills Fans
Bills fans got the news that they would be able to go to games again in the fall. There was a condition though and it didn't sit well with everyone.
This announcement did not come from The Buffalo Bills but rather from Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz. The announcement was that they fully intend to allow full capacity at Highmark Stadium for the Bills games this year. However, there is a catch. All the people at the stadium would have to be fully vaccinated.
The CDC has said that people who are fully vaccinated would not have to worry about social distancing or wearing masks when they're together. However, if you are vaccinated and someone else is not, social distancing should still be observed and masks should still be worn. So it's kind of an all-or-nothing approach.
The problem that many people are having with the condition is that the way they intend to prove that people are vaccinated is to have them download an app called the Excelsior Pass to their phone that would then act like a ticket that could be scanned at the gate.
According to Spectrum News, there is a petition that was started by Timothy Walton at Change.org that is demanding the Bills take a stand against the county's policy.
"This is America. We have freedoms to be able to live life and to CHOOSE. If you want the vaccine, go get it. If you don't, that should be your choice. "
There has been no statement from the Buffalo Bills yet regarding the policy.
