They're all vaccinated but that didn't stop them from getting the 'rona.
The New Orleans Saints are facing a crisis-level coronavirus outbreak with six vaccinated coaches and staffers and one player testing positive for the virus, a report says.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, five of the team’s assistant coaches and the team nutritionist tested positive. All are fully vaccinated.
Along with the coaches and nutritionist, one player tested positive, but that player is already on the injured reserve list.
Until this outbreak, the entire league was only reporting nine players with positive tests.
The NFL recently amended its virus testing policy for vaccinated employees to being tested only one time a week. But unvaccinated members must test for the virus daily.
