As things start to open back up, it seem like football season could be on its way back too.
On Thursday, NFL teams were informed that coaching staffs will be able to return to team facilities beginning on Friday. Only 100 personnel will be allowed in the facilities, but its a start.
“As has been emphasized in previous advice on reopening facilities, this may occur only if your club has otherwise received necessary permission from state and local governments to reopen its facility,” said a memo sent to teams that was obtained by ESPN.
“Coaches and other football staff, particularly those who may be in a higher risk category or who have concerns about their own health conditions, are expected to speak with the club medical staff or personal physician about any special precautions or other accommodations that may be appropriate for their particular circumstances. In addition, we will work with club medical staffs to implement a program of Covid-19 testing for the coaching staff and other football personnel prior to players returning to club facilities,” the memo stated.
Facilities have been closed since the March due to COVID-19.
