NFL Launches Extreme New Coronavirus Protocols Because of Thanksgiving

The National Football League has announced an update to its coronavirus protocols to be implemented ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Yet it is basing it’s extreme measures on wild-eyed worries, instead of science and reality.

Apparently assuming that players and staffers will flood the league with the virus after going home for the holidays, the NFL has re-instituted wide-ranging masking and testing requirements starting during the Thanksgiving week, according to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The new protocols will include mandatory masking, testing of everyone — vaccinated or not — twice a day, and video surveillance of workout rooms and cafeterias to make sure masks are being worn. The NFL figures on become a complete surveillance state to stop the expected tidal wave of COVID infections.

For now, the league’s new protocols are set to run from Nov. 25 to Dec. 1.

The NFL’s fears have thus far not been realized in other areas, though. So far, no extremely large gathering — including sporting events, concerts, and other public events — have ever been shown to be COVID superspreaders. So, why the league thinks a family Thanksgiving dinner would be so dangerous is anyone’s guess.
