MLB proposes testing and facility protocols for safety

MLB sent a proposal to the MLBPA Saturday outlining the league’s health and safety protocols for COVID-19 testing, facility guidelines and on-field operations, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich.

The Athletic obtained a copy of the 67-page document, where the proposals involved would be enacted if the union agrees to them.

The proposal says all players, managers, coaches, umpires and some support staff members would be tested regularly, as Sports Illustrated‘s Tom Verducci reported earlier this week. All players will undergo an “intake screening” when they arrive at camp. The Athletic reports the screening will include a temperature check with a contactless thermometer and body fluid and blood samples.
