We’re about five weeks out from the NFL’s scheduled season opener, and the league appears determined to move forward with its close-contact sport without the use of a bubble.
50 players from 25 teams have opted out for this season, but a large majority plan on suiting up and playing the 2020 season as long the coronavirus pandemic allows them to.
The Denver Broncos are going the extra length to make sure players feel comfortable about the safety protocols, s they installed a misting booth that players will walk through and spray them with sanitizer as they make their way on and off the field.
The team’s lead reporter described the spray as a non-toxic solution, “killing microbes and pathogens instantly by forming millions of nano-crystalline structures.”
Unless the mist is being sprayed continuously while they are on the field, it will do nothing to stop a cough or sneeze. At least they are trying.
