49ers Must Find New Home For Games, Practices Due to County’s COVID-19 Policy

The order goes into effect Monday


2020 hasn’t been the best to the San Francisco 49ers.

Just one season after making it to the Super Bowl, the Niners find themselves with a 4-6 record thanks to a variety of injuries and positive COVID-19 tests entering Week 12.

And apparently when it rains, it pours, because it looks like the team will have to scramble to find a place to play and practice the next few weeks.

Santa Clara County, home to Levi’s Stadium, announced Saturday it will pause contact sports for the next three weeks in a press release.

“All recreational activities that involve physical contact or close proximity to persons outside one’s household, including all contact sports, will be temporarily prohibited,” the statement read.

This order goes into effect Monday, Nov. 30 at 12:01 a.m. ET

San Francisco travels to Los Angeles to face the Rams on Sunday, but is home against the Buffalo Bills and Washington Football Team in the following two weeks. Those games, and the team’s upcoming practices, will have to be relocated.
