Many states are playing by their own rules when it comes to reopening their economies during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

For example, California Gov. Gavin Newsom does not envision fans being in attendance for sporting events throughout the remainder of the 2020 calendar year. The NFL is hoping to have fans on hand when its season starts Sept. 10.

With these different policies and outlooks, there’s no way to know how the sporting scene will look when live events get going again.

Colorado Gov.  Jared Polis added more intrigue to that conversation, indicating he sees a way fans could attend sporting events in his state with social distancing protocols in place, according to a report from 92.5 FM radio in Denver.

It’s not yet known how realistic this plan would be. Polis did say venues obviously wouldn’t be at full capacity. In reality, that doesn't seem possible until a vaccine for COVID-19 is available in a widespread fashion.

The governor’s comments would not impact the NHL or NBA. Both leagues are looking to resume their seasons in bubble cities without fans in attendance.

This would impact MLB’s Colorado Rockies and the NFL’s Denver Broncos. Major League Baseball is looking at an early July start to the season at home ballparks. Meanwhile, the NFL is still planning on its season starting Sept. 10.
