NFL States Pandemic Over, Ends All COVID Protocols

Here’s the NFL’s Trending New Announcement

The National Football League (NFL) has officially announced that it will be ending all COVID-19 related protocols, effective immediately.

Vaccine-wary NFL stars like the Buffalo Bills’ Cole Beasley and the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers took a lot of grief for their stances on government-advocated COVID protocols instituted by the league since the pandemic began.

The ever-defiant Beasley managed to rack up approximately $100,000 in fines.

Meanwhile, Rodgers was the subject of heavy ridicule from the media and the left for getting COVID after allegedly “lying” about his vaccine status, and was later mocked for talking about taking ivermectin and other alternatives after getting his positive COVID test (even though the treatment clearly helped him) — criticism he did not take lying down.

But now, none of those issues matter anymore, because the NFL has decided that the COVID pandemic is over. The league has made a new announcement that all of its COVID protocols are hereby suspended.

According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, the league and the NFL Players Association have agreed to end all COVID directives, “effective immediately.”

“After nearly two years of restrictions — and not a single game lost to the pandemic — it’s back to normal,” Pelissero wrote. “Finally.”

According to a memo sent to the teams and shared to the public via a tweet by Pelissero, “Based on current encouraging trends regarding the prevalence and severity of COVID-19, the evolving guidance from the CDC, changes to state law and the counsel of our respective experts, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to suspend all aspects of the joint COVID-19 Protocols.”

Teams are still required to stay “in compliance with state and local law and are free to continue reasonable measures to protect their staff and players.”

This means that there will be no more testing of players, regardless of vax status, no more mandated tracking devices, and no more mask requirements.

Of course, the timing of this is not a coincidence: the NFL scouting combine started the week the announcement was made.
