KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A football-starved nation is getting its games back with the start of the NFL season, but many worry that attending games or get-togethers will lead to a new surge in coronavirus infections. NFL football will kick off Thursday in Kansas City at a stadium that's allowing 17,000 fans inside.

Those spectators may be able to physically distance in the stands, but whether they're able to do so at concessions or in bathrooms is a different story. Experts fear more outbreaks as the virus has started to slow its spread.
