NBA will not require players to be vaccinated against coronavirus

The National Basketball Association (NBA) will not require players to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, league commissioner Adam Silver said.

“We see that more and more people want to get the vaccine against COVID-19. I suspect that most of the players will eventually decide to get vaccinated. On this issue, they will make decisions personally, and I take this very seriously,” – ESPN quoted Silver.

“The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already announced that if you are vaccinated, you will not need to quarantine due to close contact with the sick person. As you know, for this reason, many of our players were forced to quarantine” – the agent added.

Silver also noted that he considers it realistic to end the NBA playoffs without players’ mandatory vaccination. In his opinion, the league protocols have pretty much worked.

“I think it’s real. For the most part, the testing protocol, along with wearing masks and all the other precautions we take, pretty much works,” Silver said.
