The overall COVID-19 positivity for the NFL has been 0.46 percent, which is well below the threshold set for avoiding outbreaks at team facilities.

Players are just starting to begin traditional football practices, which will make it more difficult to remain socially distant during the course of the work day.

Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL's chief medical officer, reported the following data during a conference call Wednesday with reporters:

  • Through Tuesday, the league had conducted 109,075 COVID-19 tests.

  • The 0.46% positivity rate includes all players, coaches and staffers.

  • The player positivity rate has been 0.81%.

  • During the initial intake process, the league tested 9,983 people. The positivity rate for those tests was 1.7% overall and 1.9% for players.
