The NFL announced that teams are allowed to start re-opening club facilities as early as Tuesday, May 19th. State and local regulations prevent some teams from re-opening on the 19th, but even some of those that are allowed to re-open on the 19th are taking longer to get going.

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Tuesday that they will not be re-opening their facility until May 26th. Coaches and players are not allowed back, but the NFL is allowing 50 percent of employees to be on site, up to a 75-employee cap. For the Jaguars, this will include personnel from football operations, strength and conditioning, athletic training, facility management, and technology. Employees that return to the facility are doing so on a voluntary basis, “as long as they are comfortable returning to the stadium.”

The team is working on finalizing and testing safety protocols for when employees return next week. Masks will be required for all employees except when they are alone in their offices. There will also be a screening process for entering the front office building that includes multiple temperature checks, per Pro Football Talk.
