Additional Testing Required For Players Who Haven’t Received Booster By Dec. 17

Sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (via Twitter) that starting December 17, the NBA will require game-day testing for players who haven’t received a COVID-19 booster shot.

Charania adds that “tier one” team personnel who haven’t received the shot will will no long be able to interact with players, travel with their respective teams, or continue as tier one.

COVID-19 vaccines are required for team personnel, but not for players unless under a local mandate. This change only affects players who are fully vaccinated, as unvaccinated players have already been subject to additional testing.
