Unvaccinated NFL Players Will Be FINED For Breaking Rules!
It should be noted that the league is not forcing players to get vaccinated, but those who enter the season unvaccinated will be under considerably more pressure.
CelebnSports247.com weighs in on NFL players who are refusing to get vaccinated before the upcoming season.
There shouldn’t be any reluctance to getting vaccinated. There are too many false reports on the COVID vaccination which has caused people to be standoffish about getting tested. Speaking as someone who has been vaccinated it is nothing. As for NFL players they should really think about the safety of their fellow players. But remember, just because you are vaccinated does not mean you can’t get COVID, it just keeps you from getting serious complications of having to be hospitalized.
Any unvaccinated players found to have broken these rules could be fined $50,000 by the league or their respective teams for a first offense.
Here is what NFL.com reports:
The NFL announced on Wednesday sweeping changes to its protocols for players who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, which largely allow vaccinated players to go back to pre-pandemic normal at work, while unvaccinated players will have to continue with the restrictions put in place to deal with the pandemic during the 2020 season.
The new protocols, which were forged in an agreement this week with the NFL Players Association, were relayed to owners during a virtual meeting on Wednesday. Fully vaccinated players will no longer have to be tested daily, will not have to wear masks at team facilities, will not be subject to quarantine after exposure to a COVID-positive individual, will have no travel restrictions, may eat in the team cafeteria and use the sauna and steam room. They also will not be subject to capacity limits in the weight room and will be allowed to interact with vaccinated family and friends during travel.
Unvaccinated players will still have to be tested daily, must wear a mask at team facilities, are still subject to physical distancing, will have to quarantine after exposure, will have travel restrictions and will not be able to interact with family and friends during travel, and cannot eat in the cafeteria or use the sauna and steam room. They will be subject to capacity limits in the weight room, too.
