Testing Positive = Time Period of Immunity from NBA Protocols?
Does the NBA policy exempt players who have already had the disease from having to quarantine for some set period of time?

Read the CDC guidelines that said basically if you already had the disease then you could ignore the quarantine stuff for 3 months after you cleared the virus. Curious if NBA’s policy is similar.

Nope. Durant was hit with the contact tracing last week and had to miss a couple of games because of it.

But wasn’t Durant infected at the beginning of this whole thing around March/April? CDC talks about 3 months of immunity so he would’ve been way past that.

No, the protocols don't differentiate for players that's had it before

Correct. League does not want to provide an incentive for players to go out and contract the virus. Silver just needs to stop being so sensitive and go acquire 1000 doses of vaccine. Make a PSA about how great the vaccine is with players and donate resources to help with vaccine distribution. Be done with it.

Nah F that. Let the vulnerable people get it first and only open it up to pro athletes when it is open to the rest of the population!

Vaccines are being wasted every day due to expiration dates and storage equipment malfunction. Numerous companies and even condo buildings have been able to acquire vaccines for their employees/residents without issue. Vaccinating the NBA in a PSA for getting the vaccine isn't going to negatively effect the vaccination effort and will likely help.

Yeah, we're still about a month away from players being able to get the vaccine.

Problem is there is a lot of variance with how long antibodies last. We also don’t know nearly all there is to know about long term memory T cell immunity either. Unfortunately it’s not just the black or white thing with of “does x person have antibodies or not.” They are always going to error on the extremely conservative side for the optics of nothing else.

Yeah I get all that. My understanding is that the vaccine main benefit is that it would severely lessen the effects if a person was to contract the virus. Fauci was on TV the other day saying that the vaccine won’t really prevent the spread just lessen the symptoms.

If that’s the case then it’s make no sense giving the 1st doses to young healthy people who are at no real risk if they were to contract the virus.

No, that's not quite right. We don't know whether it will prevent the spread, because that hasn't been tested.

But most scientists expect the vaccine to significantly inhibit transmission.
