ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted on Sunday that the county is rescinding its vaccine requirement for Buffalo Bills games and stadium events due to low COVID-19 case numbers.

The county executive previously mandated in April that you must be vaccinated in order to attend Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres games in the fall.

Poloncarz cited the county's zero COVID-19 cases on Friday and four COVID-19 cases on Saturday.

The county executive says that the county will re-visit this decision in the future in case it deems it necessary.

Erie County says this decision does not apply to indoor venues that are owned by Erie County, such as KeyBank Center.

Over 69 percent of Erie County residents over the age of 18 have received their first COVID-19 dose.
