Sport NFL: "Harmful behavior!" NFL makes massive pressure on unvaccinated
California K-12 students who refuse to wear masks will be barred from school grounds, state says
California K-12 students won't be allowed on school grounds if they do not wear masks regardless of vaccination status, according to new state guidelines. The state rules are a deviation from federal guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued on July 9 that say only unvaccinated individuals are required to wear masks in schools.
The NFL has informed the 32 teams about possible sanctions in the case of a Corona outbreak under non-vaccinated players or caregivers. At worst, a defeat will be credited to the affected team.

Now the league continued one step further and informed the teams about possible consequences in the event that a game can be canceled and can not be detected due to a corona outbreak under non-vaccinated players or caregivers.
