Santos face possible outbreak of COVID-19 as six coaches vaccinated, team test positive: report

Vaccinated players were previously required to undergo testing every two weeks but the league updated its policy to weekly testing and maintained daily testing for unvaccinated players.  The NFL announced late last month that the player vaccination rate was up 93%. NFL Chief Medical Officer Allen Sills said that there were 68 positive results among 7,190 tests between Aug. 1 to Aug. 21, for a positivity rate of 0.95 percent, according to NFL.com.

The Saints have reportedly entered enhanced mitigation protocols which means any player or staff member, vaccinated or not, will have to undergo daily testing and will have to wear masks.  According to the report, one player also tested positive but is currently on the injured reserve list.

The Saints, who have been practicing in Texas and played their home opener against the Green Bay Packers in Jacksonville as a result of Hurricane Ida, are still scheduled to play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Unvaccinated players also risk missing significant time if they test positive or interact with positive cases, despite testing negative.
