ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Erie County Department of Health tells News 4 that four people were refused entry to Highmark Stadium for the Bills game Sunday by county sanitarians, according to their preliminary reports.

The county says those four people were turned away by staff because of secondary checks. ECDOH says they don’t have details on the specific circumstances as to why the four were rejected.

An ECDOH spokesperson says they don’t know how many people were turned away by Buffalo Bills Guest Services staff. News 4 is working to get those numbers.
