Report: NBA sets protocols for teams traveling to Disney World
NBA teams are scheduled to arrive in Disney World this week.
As the MLS has shown, traveling to the campus is an especially perilous time.
Obviously, NBA players who’ve tested positive for coronavirus and haven’t yet been cleared won’t be able to travel with their teams. But that’s not enough of a limitation.
There’s a risk a player contracts coronavirus shortly before leaving for Orlando, passes two coronavirus tests upon arrival before the virus incubates then brings coronavirus into the bubble. It’s one of the diciest aspects of the NBA’s plan.
It’s also easy to see how players would resist being stuck in their rooms even longer.
So, taking extra steps to ensure players don’t arrive at Disney World with recently contracted coronavirus is important – and hopefully enough to keep everyone safe.
