NBA to Require its Players, Team Staff to Wear Contact-Tracing Sensor

The NBA is focused on taking every precaution necessary to get through the season.

With that in mind, the league will look to implement new technology to ease the contact-tracing process. Starting on January 7th, the NBA will require its players and many team staffers to wear a sensor device during all team-organized events and activities that occur outside of games.

Those who do not wear the sensor will be disciplined by the league.

 

The league carried out a testing program for the tech and expects to implement it next week. The sensors themselves do not record GPS location, therefore providing team employees with a level of privacy, but it will activate whenever an individual comes within six feet of another person who wears the same sensor.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, there have been zero positive COVID-19 tests in the NBA since December 24.
