NFL 告诉剩余的季后赛球队未接种疫苗的球员不再接受每日 Covid-19 测试

美国国家橄榄球联盟周五发布了一份备忘录,建议剩下的八支季后赛球队未接种疫苗的球员不再需要每天进行 Covid-19 测试.

Covid-19 protocols updated by the league and NFL Players Association have been updatedto eliminate the distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated players to determine testing cadence,” the NFL said in its memo obtained by CNN.
This only affects about 12 unvaccinated players who are not on testing holiday, which refers to when an individual who tests positive doesn’t have to take a test for 90 天, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told CNN.
    The NFL and players association have made multiple changes this season to the protocols in response to the pandemic. 在一个点上, fully vaccinated individuals were required to test weekly and unvaccinated individuals daily.
      在十二月 28, the league said it had reduced the amount of time that players who test positive for the virus may have to isolate from their team after updated CDC guidance was released.
        Effective immediately, any player or staff member who reports symptoms will be tested promptly, according to the latest memo. “Targeted surveillance testing,” which has been in effect since December 18, 将继续.
        This comprehensive, symptom-based approach to testing, reflects our recent experience with the Omicron variant and conforms to current public health recommendations and best practices employed in healthcare, and offers the best opportunity for identifying and treating cases promptly and avoiding spread within the facility,” 备忘录说.
          在十二月 15, the league stated nearly 95% of its players were fully vaccinated along with “100%” of other NFL personnel. 美国橄榄球联盟, like other sports leagues, does not mandate that players be vaccinated.
            的 2021 NFL season is coming to a close, with only the Tennessee Titans, 堪萨斯城酋长, 布法罗比尔, 辛辛那提孟加拉虎, 绿湾包装工, 坦帕湾海盗, Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers remaining.
            Super Bowl LVI is scheduled to be played February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, 加利福尼亚州.
