Fans attending Georgia football games will be required to wear masks.

According to Seth Emerson, Bulldogs athletic director Greg McGarity announced Thursday that masks will be mandated at home games at Sanford Stadium during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Any stadium that has fans during the coronavirus pandemic will almost certainly require masks. I don’t see any situation where stadiums are packed and fans aren’t in masks.

Georgia wasn’t the first school to make this call, and they absolutely won’t be the last. This is the new normal during the coronavirus pandemic.

As I’ve said a million times, I’m not interested in getting into some half-cocked debate about masks. If wearing one while in public makes .0000001% of a difference and helps save football, then I’ll wear a damn mask.

Will I moan and complain about it? Sure, but I’ll still do it because saving football is worth a minor inconvenience at the end of the day.

Now, Georgia will mandate all fans wear them at games during the 2020 season. If you don’t like it, then don’t go to a game during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s really that simple.
