NFL says teams can start reopening facilities next week: report
THE ANGELS: The national soccer league says teams can reopen their installations with strict health guidelines and whenever state and local governments allow it, the US media reported.
In a memorandum to the general managers of the 32 clubs, commissioner Roger Goodell He said the doors for specific personnel may begin to open Tuesday.
"Clubs may reopen their installations beginning on May 19 if they are permitted to do so under governing state and local regulations," Goodell said in the memo obtained by the Nfl Network .
He added that they must meet the additional public health requirements in their jurisdiction and have implemented the protocols that were developed by (NFL Medical Director Dr. Allen Sills ) and distributed to all clubs on May 6.
All Nfl installations were ordered to be shut down beginning March 25 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The league is prohibiting coaching staffs from the team installations during the "Phase 1" reopening.
Teams can have only 50 percent of their staff in the facility at a time and no more than 75 people. Players are prohibited from team installations unless they are undergoing medical treatment or rehabilitation.
"After we implement this first phase, and as more states and localities enact policies that allow more club installations to reopen, I expect that additional staff, likely including coaching staff, will be allowed to return to club installations in a relatively short time," Goodell said.
