Bengals coach Zac Taylor returns to facility [video]

The NFL continues to prepare for the 2020 season as some coaches return to their team facilities.

Not all NFL teams are hurrying back to their facilities to work, but Bengals head coach Zac Taylor has returned. Precautions for Covid-19 are in place, as you can see from the Bengals official Twitter account.

As you can see in the above clip, protocols are in place, including a temperature scan before entering the facility. Besides the health screening, the NFL has mandated physical distancing and facility and equipment cleaning and disinfecting. Every locker must be six-feet apart, which will likely need to take some creative engineering. Strength and conditioning workouts must be limited to groups of no more than 15 players. And meetings are still to be conducted virtually “to the extent possible.”

Of course, football players do occasionally run into each other on the field, so some of the precautions sound funny in juxtaposition to the nature of the game. But, it appears precautions are in place and the NFL is still on track to start the season on time.
