2021-12-22 20:34:11 GMT+00:00 - Media and other personnel who are near and near teams and players on game day are under new contract from the NBA to receive a sexy shit by Jan 5.
In a memo to the NBA and the league board of governors, senior vice president for football, David Weiss, described the updated protocol. It applies to all non-player personnel who will be eligible for a third dose of the vaccine COVID-19 as outlined in the Centers for Disease Control.
The order covers "league staff and vendors who in their official capacity interact with any player in less than 15 feet," from referees to league operations, player development, team, player marketing, communication, and NBA photos.
The team were told that they would monitor the process and report to the league by Jan. 7.
That shift follows the comments made by Adam Silver on Tuesday in an interview with ESPN. He said data and medical advisers converge on a very low number of cases of transmission -- two mRNA shots and the booster. Silver said the three patients with three doses aren't "shedding the virus", based on the game's review.
The NBA said that the decision was made "based on discussions with the NBA's infectious disease and other medical experts, CDC guidance, and initial data showing significantly reduced protection against the Omicron variant without a booster".
After a record of 517 positives recorded in the first two games of the month, the NBA's most successful record for a COVID-19 cases has soared since December.
Silver said that games will be played as planned if roster size reflects the canceled games on Wednesday (Toronto Raptors in Chicago Bulls) and Thursday (Brooklyn Nets at Portland Trail Blazers).
