Browns enter league's enhanced COVID-19 protocols, meetings virtual Tuesday

The Cleveland Browns are dealing with COVID-19 issues ahead of Saturday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The team announced Tuesday it entered the NFL’s enhanced COVID-19 protocols. Meetings will be held virtually. In addition, all tiered personnel are required to mask while indoors.

A Browns walkthrough is scheduled for this afternoon.

The announcement comes after a rash of COVID-19 positive tests around the NFL. Thirty-six NFL players — 25 on active rosters and 11 on practice squads — were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday as a result of positive tests. It is the largest number of additions to the list since its creation in 2020, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported.

On Monday, the NFL mandated all Tier 1 and 2 personnel “who have previously been vaccinated and are eligible under [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines, must receive a booster shot” by Dec. 27, as announced in a memo obtained by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. The mandate does not include players.
