Vaccine Mandate


NBA, Referees Association Come to Agreement Requiring Vaccination for 2022

The NBA is not messing around with the coronavirus.

With NBA training camp only a month away, the NBA announced that it has struck a deal with the National Basketball Referees Association, requiring every NBA referee to receive the COVID-19 vaccine ahead of the season.

Per agreement, referees will also receive the booster shots once they become recommended.

“This agreement was a win-win,” the NBRA said in a statement. “It will support the NBA’s objective of creating a safer on-court environment and continuity of play while protecting the health and well-being of the referees. [A] clear example of when labor and management work together for the common good of their collective business.”

This announcement comes off the heels of the league telling teams that anyone within close proximity of players and referees will also be required to be vaccinated. The vaccine mandate covers coaches, support staff, locker room attendants, and all those working the official scorer’s tables in NBA arenas during games.

It is important to note that players at this time are not required to be fully vaccinated.
