Another testing kit would then be issued by the 4th day of camp. Negative results are required for footballers to train at their home facilities & compete in physical activities. Once NFL athletes confirmed with the virus are cleared with a negative status, the process will repeat.

It should be clarified that 95 NFL Players have contracted the coronavirus since arriving at their training camps. It’s the highest-infection growth seen amongst all professional sports leagues.
