The Eagles released the following statement Wednesday morning:

"The City of Philadelphia announced earlier today an indoor mask mandate throughout the city, regardless of vaccination status. In accordance with the mandate, the Philadelphia Eagles have updated their health and safety protocols.

"All stadium guests and staff will be required to wear a mask when visiting indoor spaces at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans are not required to wear a mask outdoors. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a mask at all times unless actively eating or drinking. Fans should bring their own masks to the stadium.

"Our organization is communicating directly with Season Ticket Members and fans scheduled to attend Thursday's game to ensure they are fully aware of the updated stadium policy. We will continue to monitor developments and remain prepared to adjust stadium policies quickly and safely as needed."

The Eagles host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday at 7:30 PM. The team worked over the last year with government agencies, public health experts, and league officials to develop enhanced health and safety protocols. As part of this work, the Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation for implementing the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in an effort to provide a safe experience at the stadium.
