LANDOVER, Md. (WDVM) — FedEx Field announced it will require masks indoors at all games regardless of vaccination status, the venue announced Tuesday evening.

Fully vaccinated fans are allowed to ditch their masks outside, while FedEx Field is recommending unvaccinated fans keep them on.

The venue says unvaccinated fans should only temporarily remove their face coverings while eating or drinking.

The Washington Football Team returns to Landover this Friday for a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
