49ers not among NFL teams that will reopen facilities this week, per report

May 17, 2020 at 5:11 PM--

The NFL sent out a memo this past week to its 32 teams stating that they could begin using their facilities again, in a limited manner, starting on Tuesday, so long as they meet an established set of protocols and have permission under state and local regulations.

That will not include the San Francisco 49ers, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN, which should not come as a surprise.

As Wagoner points out, the reopening of facilities does not include coaches and non-rehabbing players, also stated within the memo. The first groups allowed back in must consist of no more than 50 percent of non-player staff, and up to a total of 75 individuals per day. Players rehabbing from injuries that occurred before the closures, and those responsible for their care, are still allowed to remain at team facilities.

Bay Area counties remain under stay-at-home orders through the end of May due to the coronavirus pandemic that continues to impact the country. It has now been two months since those orders, requiring some seven million Bay Area residents to stay home for all but the most essential errands, took effect.

The 49ers have started their offseason program. Although, like all NFL teams, they are conducting it virtually via video conferences and will continue doing so.
