The SEC will allow fans this fall as the conference sets its 2020 football safety guidelines.

The league will allow its member schools to dictate many of the policies, but the conference is requiring fans to wear masks as they enter, exit and move around stadiums.

The number of fans allowed inside will be set by each school. Alabama school officials have announced that it will allow fans at 20 percent capacity, while Tennessee green-lit 25 percent. Louisiana Governor Jon Bel Edwards said Tuesday that the state is working with LSU on a plan that could be released later this week.

Among the other policies across the board will be the use of masks for all stadium and school staff members. Barriers will be used at a point-of-sale locations, tickets will be digital and lines will be spaced.
