NFL Presents: A Conversation on Tackling COVID-19
Join us for a discussion with medical leaders from American football and English rugby about their leagues’ COVID-19 mitigation strategies and what we’ve learned through the challenges of the last year. Experts will discuss the importance of testing; high risk contacts and the role of contact tracing; how rugby’s rules can be adapted to reduce transmission risk; the leagues’ protocols around masking and social distancing; the impact of altered season structures on injury risk; lessons learned from sport that can be applied more broadly; and the risks and opportunities that lie ahead.

NFL Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allen Sills will be joined by Dr. Simon Kemp – Rugby Football Union Medical Services Director – and other experts working to keep athletes safe in the U.K., including:
• Dr. Katy Hornby – Rugby Football Union England Women's Senior Team Doctor
• Dr. Brendan Payne – Consultant Medical Virologist
• Dr. Gemma Phillips – Rugby Football League COVID-19 Medical Officer
