BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Anyone who trespasses on the Bills' stadium and parking lots on Sunday will be arrested, Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard warns.

"We have worked with the Buffalo Bills organization to implement safety and security measures for the stadium and the lots," said Sheriff Howard in a statement.

Because of COVID-19, large gatherings are still prohibited and spectators are not allowed in stadiums or arenas for sporting events.

"The Bills have created a detailed and strict plan to abide by the Governor's orders, and my office will assist the team in enforcing the guidelines on stadium property," said Sheriff Howard.

Erie County Sheriff's Office deputies and vehicles will be patrolling the lots and stadium's perimeter at One Bills Drive.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday, Abbot Road will be closed to vehicular traffic between Route 20 to Route 20a.
