– In the last memo sent to franchises, the new protocol against COVID-19 is clarified. It strongly resembles that of 2020 (stopping of physical meetings, wearing of masks indoors for all players, isolation in hotel rooms when traveling, etc.). A major novelty, the protocol for getting off the Covid-19 list has been simplified for vaccinated players: asymptomatic cases will no longer have to respect a 24-hour period between two negative tests. From now on, several possibilities exist to get out of the list. A negative PCR test will allow you to come back. Otherwise, the players’ viral load will be tested. If it is low enough that the player is no longer considered contagious, he can return.
