GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -University of Florida President Kent Fuch’s issued a statement Sunday evening that said UF is committed to continuing to follow CDC guidelines on campus.

This includes at athletic events. Social distancing and face masks will still be required and stadium capacity will still be limited.

This comes after Gators Football Head Coach Dan Mullen called for the Swamp to be packed for next week’s game against LSU after Saturday’s lose to Texas A&M.

“I know our governor passed that rule so certainly, hopefully, the university administration decides to let us pack The Swamp,” added Mullen. "Hundred percent, because that crowd was a major factor in the game, and so, I certainly hope our university administration follows the governor. Our governor has passed a rule that we’re allowed to pack the Swamp. We have 90,000 in The Swamp to give us that home-field advantage that Texas A&M had today.
