NFL Revises Covid-19 Protocols, Will End Mandatory Testing For Asymptomatic Fully Vaccinated Players

The NFL revised its Covid-19 protocols on Saturday and will no longer test asymptomatic, fully vaccinated players.

95% of NFL players and over 99% of coaches and staff are fully vaccinated against Covid.

The unvaxxed will still be tested daily and the vaxxed will be subject to “targeted” testing.

“In short: Unvaccinated individuals will continue to be tested daily. Fully vaccinated individuals will be subject to “targeted” testing, as well as if they show symptoms and if they have a high-risk contact with a vaccinated individual — but not a regular weekly test.” NFL reporter Tom Pelissero said.

The new changes come just one day after the NFL postponed three games over a Covid surge.

More than 150 vaccinated NFL players have tested positive for Covid in the past week – most were asymptomatic.

Two games were moved to Monday and one game was moved to Tuesday.
