BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Altoona Curve along with the Blair County Department of Emergency Services, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Major League Baseball announced a lift in COVID-19 capacity protocols at Peoples Natural Gas Field (PNG Field).

Beginning Tuesday, June 8 and continuing for the remaining 48 home games, Curve games will see near capacity stands since restrictions on outdoor venues will be lifted May 31.

“With summer weather right around the corner, we are thrilled to be able to share this news today,” Curve General Manager Derek Martin said, in a press release.
