NEW YORK, NY (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has instructed the 32 teams to close their facilities to all but a select few employees by 6 p.m. Wednesday.

In a memo to the teams, Goodell said the restrictions meant as a safeguard against the new coronavirus will be in force until at least April 8.

Then the league will re-evaluate, using advice from medical experts and health authorities.

The few exceptions include trainers and doctors treating players, security and technology personnel.
