The NFL suspended its COVID-19 protocols back in March, no longer requiring mandated testing for players or staff or masks, unless stated otherwise by state and local law. They are still expected to monitor and report symptoms.
Any person who tests positive is still subject to a five-day isolation period, the NFL informed clubs back in June, citing the CDC’s guidelines.
