NFL updates COVID-19 protocols to include 5-day isolation for "high risk" close contact exposure

In a memo distributed to teams on Monday, the NFL-NFLPA protocols were updated with new requirements for individuals deemed to have had "high risk" close contact exposure with a COVID-19 positive individual.

What It Means:

Under the new protocols distributed on Monday, anyone that is determined to have had "high risk" close contact exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual must be isolated for at least 5 days, even if they test negative and remain asymptomatic. According to Tom Pelissero, this means that if a player tests positive for COVID-19 after Tuesday during a game week, that player and anyone who is deemed to have had "high risk" close contact with that them, would miss at least one game and potentially more based on testing and symptoms.
