COVID-19 is dominating the news and our thoughts. This is a dynamic situation that requires both diligence and thoughtfulness.
We have been closely monitoring the ever-changing conditions relating to COVID-19 and have been implementing recommendations from the CDC's Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers, state and local health departments, medical experts at the World Health Organization and our team's medical staff, among others.
Consistent with the National Football League office, and with the health and safety of our communities as a priority, we will require all staff except for operationally critical staff to work from home until further notice beginning tomorrow, Friday March 13. We have also significantly adjusted planned travel for coaches and scouts.
Beyond these precautions, we will continue our preparations for the 2020 season — including free agency and the NFL Draft — and continue to monitor what has become an increasingly fluid situation with developments unfolding in real time.
The health and safety of our community, players, employees and fans are our highest priority, and we will continue to make decisions in the coming days and weeks with them in mind.
