NFL covid protocol: what the new season will look like
The NFL decided to suspend all covid-19 protocols ahead of the 2022 season as the virus seemingly goes downwards. The league is now going ‘back to normal.’
On Thursday, the NFL and NFLPA agreed to suspend all covid-19 protocols in an attempt to put the pandemic behind it.
That fueled a lot of players’ demand for postponing games, like the NFL had done previously. Others, like Tampa Bay Bucs’ coach, Bruce Arians, were demanding less strict protocols. Arians was pushing for allowing asymptomatic players to play.
The league reflects that thinking with their latest decision.
