The NFL is limiting player access to team facilities as it attempts to increase security measures during the COVID-19 epidemic.
In a memo sent to 32 franchises on Friday and a league order initiated on Monday by The Associated Press, all teams playing on Sunday must close those facilities for the next two days. Injuries or rehab programs only require medical attention from players who can enter the team’s campus.
Coaches can use the facility but must work in their own offices and cannot conduct meetings except virtually.
Teams playing on Monday night can add players to their facilities next Thursday, and teams with Thursday night games must close the players’ complex by Sunday.
Such arrangements were agreed upon by the players’ union.
USA Today first reported the memo sent to the clubs.
