All fully vaccinated NFL players will have to be tested for COVID-19 every week during the regular season, according to an agreement between the NFL and NFL Players Association.

The NFL says players who are not fully vaccinated will have to undergo daily testing, including on off days.

Unvaccinated players also risk missing games if they are designated a “high-risk close contact” and have to quarantine.

Vaccinated players can undergo daily testing for five days, and continue to pay if they remain virus-free.

All unvaccinated player are required to wear masks indoors.
