The Associated Press

The Milwaukee Brewers and Bucks are both bringing more fans back into their buildings as the coronavirus crisis ebbs.

The clubs announced separately on May 11 that they will raise their fan capacity limits to 50%. The Brewers will do it at American Family Field starting May 15. The Bucks will do it for the upcoming NBA playoffs at Fiserv Forum.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the two teams had worked with city health officials for their previous limits — 25% for the Brewers and almost 18% for the Bucks.

Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson said the teams have been vigilant about good safety practices.

The NBA playoffs start May 22. Bucks President Peter Feigin said it’s important that fans continue to wear masks and follow other safety protocols.
