Sources say The Athletic’s Shams Charania (via Twitter) starting December 17, the NBA will require game-day testing for players who have not received a COVID-19 booster shot. Charania adds that level 1 personnel who have not received footage will not be able to interact with players, travel with their respective teams, or continue as level 1.
A COVID-19 vaccine is required for team staff, but not for players unless local authorization is obtained. This change only affects fully vaccinated players and staff, as unvaccinated players have received additional testing.
