The NFL on Friday notified teams they will be prohibited from allowing draft-eligible prospects from traveling to meet with team officials.
As a measure designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the coronavirus, the league also is not allowing team personnel from traveling to any location to meet with draft-eligible players.
The action, which was sent out as a memo to the 32 NFL teams, is a change of course for the NFL, which said Thursday that each team was responsible for creating their own sets of guidelines.
“We have not taken this step lightly but believe that it is most consistent with protecting the health of our club personnel, draft-eligible players, and the public,” the NFL said in a statement on Friday. “It also has the ancillary benefit of ensuring competitive equality.”https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/49ers ... s-outbreak
