There were signs -- dim in the death and dying and amid so much grief -- but signs of better days to come. The weapons against COVID-19 were getting stronger.

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- The New York Mets will return to full capacity at Citi Field starting next week.

The team announced Wednesday they will resume full capacity Monday, June 21 for the Mets doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves.

The team says social distancing and mask requirements have been eased, and fans will no longer need to show proof of a negative COVID test or vaccination to enter the ballpark.

The announcement comes a day after the New York Yankees made the same decision to expand to full capacity.

More than half the 30 teams have announced plans to resume full capacity.

Only Texas began this season at 100% after fans weren't permitted during the shortened 2020 regular season because of the coronavirus.
