O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis Blues won’t be playing to an empty arena when they open their first homestand next week.

The NHL team said Monday it will allow a very small crowd made up of medical workers and public safety employees who have been on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic. The Blues open the truncated schedule with two games at Colorado Wednesday and Friday, followed by a four-game homestand that begins Jan. 18 against the San Jose Sharks. The Blues plan to allow fewer than 300 fans.

The team is working with health care systems and public safety organizations to identify workers for January home games.
