An important change on Wednesday to COVID-19 protocols took place through an agreement between the NFL and NFLPA.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported the standard isolation period after a positive test for asymptomatic individuals from 10 days to five days regardless of vaccination status.

The agreement includes both vaccinated and unvaccinated players and is contingent on the player being asymptomatic.

The change in protocols was made in accordance with new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
