In light of the increase in COVID-19 cases around the nation, the NFLPA is now urging players not to practice together during private workouts to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

A number of players around the league have already tested positive for the disease.

The players’ union issued a statement from its medical director, Dr. Thom Mayer, on Friday.

“Please be advised that it is our consensus medical opinion that in light of the increase in Covid-19 cases in certain states that no players should be engaged in practicing together in private workouts,” Mayer wrote. “Our goal is to have all players and your families as healthy as possible in the coming months.”

“We are working on the best mitigation procedures at team facilities for both training camps and the upcoming season, and believe that it is in the best interest of all players that we advise against any voluntary joint practices before training camp commences,” Mayer continued, before concluding his statement with, “Be safe.”
