Lousiana State University is adjusting some restrictions for its football games this season.

On Monday, LSU's athletic department said they would stop medical wellness checks at entry gates to reduce lines and wait times.

"While no longer required for entry, LSU Athletics officials encourage fans to conduct a self-assessment before heading to the game to check for COVID-19 symptoms," officials said in the press release.

Officials also announced that alcohol will now be sold at games.

Fans must wear a mask when buying alcohol, and can only consume their drinks in their seats, officials said.

Officials added that fans must wear masks during the entire game, since "a large percentage of fans removed their masks while in their seats in Tiger Stadium" when the Tigers hosted Mississippi State back in September.
