As individual states deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, each one needs to figure out what the procedure would be when it comes to fans attending games. It's a case by case scenario because each state is dealing with a different severity of the outbreak.

The state of Texas has been working through the pandemic just like everyone else, but they're now moving forward with the process of figuring out how fans can attend games again. According to governor Greg Abbott, outdoor stadiums will be able to hold fans once sports seasons start up again at 25% capacity.

This is a huge step forward for the upcoming NFL season in the fall. With hopes of the pandemic slowing down by the end of the summer, Abbott is saying that some fans will be allowed to watch their Cowboys, Texans and favorite college football squads on time.

For AT&T Stadium as well as NRG Stadium, the facilities will have to use their retractable roofs in order to comply with the ruling. As long as proper social distancing is practiced at these sporting events, then Texas fans could be in store for watching their favorite sport in person once again.
