Major League Soccer players are returning to their team's outdoor facilities Wednesday for individual workouts ... and you bet your ass everyone is undergoing medical screenings on the way in.

MLS officials say the league worked with medical experts to come up with new safety protocols to allow players to train while following government orders. The new changes went into effect on May 6 -- and a bunch of players are seizing the opportunity.

The MLS posted video Wednesday showing a number of Orlando City and Sporting Kansas City players wearing masks, using hand sanitizer and getting their temperatures taken as they arrive to practice.
