NFL Won’t Allow Media in Locker Rooms During 2021 amid COVID-19 Concerns



For the second consecutive season, media members will be barred from NFL locker rooms amid rising COVID-19 cases.

In a memo sent to clubs Tuesday, the league announced that only 50 individuals will be permitted locker room access while players are present.

Individuals that are permitted inside locker rooms include coaches, general managers, athletic trainers, team doctors, security, public relations staff and club media personnel.

The league’s new restrictions mean media members who are not affiliated with the team will not be permitted to access and interact with players in the locker room this season.

The 50-individual limit is a ten0person increase from the 2020 season.

All individuals with locker room access who have to be vaccinated as well.
