Major League Soccer is easing its training restrictions, allowing clubs to use their practice fields but only for individual workouts and under strict rules.
Team training facilities have been closed, other than for approved rehab, since the league suspended play March 12 due to the global pandemic.
In giving the green light Friday to individual workouts, the league said they would be voluntary and would have to meet local public health official or government policies.
The league is also imposing a list of requirements, including players completing a "screening assessment survey" prior to every arrival and temperature checks upon arrival at the facility.
Players will have to wear personal protective equipment from the parking lot to the training field and back. Staff will also have to wear "appropriate personal protective equipment" during training while maintaining a minimum distance of 10 feet (3.1 metres) from players at all times.
Players and staff will have to arrive and leave at staggered times, with designated parking spaces to maintain maximum distance between vehicles.
