The NFL has made another adjustment as concerns of the coronavirus continue to remain a priority.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams saying that all facilities will close Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. The adjustment will ensure “all clubs operate on a level playing field” while teams “may continue to conduct all normal business, including signing players.”
The league will reassess the situation April 8.
Here’s what the memo states, in its entirety:
