The San Francisco 49ers will not be able to play games at Levi's Stadium and practice at their facility as Santa Clara County has instituted a three-week ban on any contact sports taking place int he county.

The ban comes as COVID-19 cases in California and the Bay Area increase.

"All recreational activities that involve physical contact or close proximity to persons outside one's household, including all contact sports, will be temporarily prohibited," the order said. "People can continue to engage in outdoor athletics and recreation where social distancing can be maintained at all times."

The 49ers are scheduled to play two home games within that three-week span, including a December 7th game on Monday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.
