NFL extends daily testing for COVID-19

NFL extends testing

The NFL and NFLPA are coming to an agreement that would allow every player to be tested for COVID-19 every day until September 5. Their original agreement had testing being done daily from July 20 until August 3.

The NFLPA tweeted about the extension of testing on Tuesday afternoon.

Even though daily testing has been extended, the deadline for players to opt out of the 2020 season has passed. It is assumed that players who test positive will be removed from team activities until multiple negative tests are confirmed.

New face masks that have built in protection for the virus are being kicked around the NFL as further safeguarding measures are being put into place. Coaches including Anthony Lynn and Doug Pederson have tested positive. On Tuesday, the Bengals’ John Ross left training camp due to his son’s positive test.

TGH will continue to release articles as more updates about safety protocols become available.
