Sellick Comments on Challenges of NFL Reopening

Updated July 20, 2020

John A. Sellick Jr., DO, professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, discusses the challenges the NFL and teams across the league face in starting a season amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Sellick says it is ill-advised to allow fans to return to stadiums. “Realistically, I just don’t see how we can even be remotely thinking about bringing fans back until there is a submission of the virus, and presumably that is going to involve the availability of a vaccine,” says Sellick.
