The 49ers now are banned from practicing and playing in Santa Clara, California, where they call home. Santa Clara County released new COVID-19 restrictions today that include a ban on all contact sports and a mandatory 14-day quarantine for anyone traveling into the region from more than 150 miles away.

It creates an emergency for the 49ers, who fortunately play in Los Angeles against the Rams on Sunday.

The team quickly will have to find a new place to practice and play, and the 49ers released a statement Saturday night saying they are working on it.

“We are aware of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department’s emergency directive,” the team said. “We are working with the NFL and our partners on operational plans and will share details as they are confirmed.”

The 49ers have home games against Buffalo on Dec. 7 and against Washington on Dec. 13.

  1. What a joke. They couldn’t make an exception for a pro football team?

    California is a joke.

  2. I have a huge back yard. I will only charge $4.00 per beer instead of the average NFL Stadium cost of $9.00

  3. How about Oakland? I hear they have a really beautiful Coliseum that’s not in use at the moment…

  4. The feud between Jed York and Santa Clara county coninues, as the county wants more money from the team. This is just a grift, right out of the mafia playbook. But now it’s our government doing it in the name of “science”.

  5. California is a mess, the sooner pro sports learns that the better, move to San Antonio and make it work there.

  6. No contact sports and a 14-day quarantine for anyone coming from more than 150 miles away? It sounds like they don’t want the Niners to play in that expensive, relatively new stadium. Let them play in Oakland or San Diego….or even Vegas. It can’t be that hard to find an alternative. If they played in Vegas not only would Santa Clara lose all the taxes they gain from those games but California would also lose out on the 12.3% state income tax for all those games.
