The CFL says it expects 95 per cent of its players to be fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus by December 1. In a statement issued Wednesday, the league said that figure includes players having received their second dose for at least 14 days. The CFL also explained that out of the 42,200 tests conducted, only 34 came back positive.
The individuals who tested positive were removed from team activities until return-to-play protocols are met. The CFL’s regular season ended on Sunday, and earlier this year the league had an outbreak that resulted in one game being postponed.
CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said “while these numbers are a testament to diligence and hard work, they are only regular-season results, and everyone in our league strives for success in the post-season,… I want to remind everyone to remain vigilant and disciplined as teams march into the playoffs and the Grey Cup.”
