The NFL sent a memo informing teams of enhanced COVID-19 protocols around the Thanksgiving holiday on Wednesday.

All players, whether vaccinated or not, and personnel interacting with players will be required to wear masks from November 25 to December 1 while they are the team’s facilities. The memo also says teams will be required to make video of their weight rooms and cafeterias available to the league on or before November 29.

All players will also be tested on Monday, November 29 and Wednesday, December 1. Under the usual protocols, vaccinated players are only tested once a week while unvaccinated players test daily.

The memo also encourages teams to provide drive-thru testing at their facilities for family and friends who will be visiting for the holiday. That testing should be designed to take place before those visitors interact with players or other team personnel.

  1. I guess this is for everyone but Aaron?

    If the rules before did not apply to him why would new ones?

  2. But there are no real consequence as proven by Aaron and Green Bay, write a check and ignore everything unless you are on Roger’s naughty list cough, cough Raiders and Saints.

  3. Got my booster vaccine today. It was a very easy process. Had to show my vaccination card to enter a concert venue Saturday night. The process was so simple that it took less than five seconds.

    I’m having a difficult time understanding how doing those simple things somehow deprive me of my freedoms.

  4. Minnesota has 20 of the top 100 counties for COVID cases. The Vikings/Packers game should not allow fans if the powers that be want us to truly take the pandemic seriously.

    That’s because they DONT… not even in the slightest bit…

    You need to show your license or federal I.D. to buy alcohol..

    You HAD to have the MMR vaccination to attend public school…

    The “restricted freedom” argument is less intelligent than the Chewbacca defense.

  6. “I’m having a difficult time understanding how doing those simple things somehow deprive me of my freedoms.”

    They don’t of course and only the most selfish and childish among us think they do

  7. Good moves; being a little extra careful. Multiple players are gonna miss games during the stretch run because they’re gonna catch it at Thanksgiving/Christmas.

  8. The NFL has already showed that they dont care about the protocols. Why continue the farce?
