PGA Tour changes COVID-19 testing, health protocols for vaccinated and non-vaccinated players (

With all people age 18 and over now eligible for vaccination, the tour announced a new framework in a memo for policing against the virus. The biggest change involves no more routine testing for those who have been fully vaccinated, stated as 14 days since the last vaccine shot was administered. Additionally, fully vaccinated players will be allowed to gather in small groups, per CDC guidelines, and those who come in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 will not need to quarantine unless exhibiting symptoms. The use of face coverings and social distancing will still be required in accordance with the tour’s health and safety program, with the tour adding it still has the discretion to periodically test its membership.
