Tomorrow is opening day at the Padres and if you’re going to the game things might be a little different.
- The Padres are only allowed 20 percent capacity for their home games, which isto about 10 thousand fans in the stands.
- Fans will be grouped in pods of six seats, socially distanced. They'll have to wear masks unless they are eating or drinking at their seat.
- Concession ordering will be done through a mobile app. You can no longer bring in outside food, except for one 32 ounce sealed bottle of water. For children, they can bring in milk or a small juice pouch.
- There is also a no-bag policy, with the exception four-by six-inch fanny packs or clutches.
The Padres could increase capacity if we enter the Orange Tier.

Today is National Prom Day!
Most schools won’t be having prom (again) this year, but this day might help bring a little bit of the prom spirit. This day isn’t about this year’s prom -- it’s about proms of the past. The day encourages all generations to share their prom photos on social media. Use the hashtag #nationalpromday and tag @promgirlxo and @promguytux.
