According to a memo obtained by CNBC, the NFL requires top staff to receive a Covid-19 vaccine booster shot by December 27th.
The mission is intended for staff, including coaches, trainers, doctors, and other people in direct contact with players, as well as specific assistant coaches, general managers, and operations employees.
This memo also recommends that the club arrange to provide boosters to eligible employees. As defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, staff currently not qualified as boosters must comply with the new policy within 14 days of being qualified as a booster.
Players will not be affected by the new mandate, as the Covid protocol will need to be negotiated with the NFL Players Association.
This change is due to an increase in positive cases among NFL players as variants of Omicroncovid have become established nationwide. 36 players, 25 players on the active roster and 11 players on the practice team were put on the preliminary list after a positive Covid test on Monday.
