News 12 Long Island's Kevin Maher got an inside look at the safety procedures being put in place as the first fans return to the Nassau Coliseum.
The Coliseum will host its first home game with fans Thursday, as 1,000 Northwell Health front-line workers will get to take in the action before season ticketholders get priority next week.
Extra barriers are something you'll see plenty of, whether it be in the bathrooms or down near the ice.
Social distancing is a top priority, with the concourse area having a different flow of traffic.
And if you're looking to take in a game, the first handful are already off the books. Selling out is a bit easier with only 10% capacity allowed. That means only about 1,400 fans.
