The MLBPA initially said that a vote on the league's latest offer would be delayed after it was thought there would take time to collect further information on health and safety protocols as COVID-19 continues to be an issue.

Recent positive coronavirus tests led to the shutdown of spring training sites, and the MLBPA is seeking to learn more about the health plan as COVID-19 continues to be an issue. The season was scheduled to start March 26, but the pandemic led to a delay.

NBA Monitoring Florida Boost in Covid-19 Cases

NBA will implement its bubble play beginning in July with teams slated to take part in the league's game plan arriving within the first two weeks of the month.  This will be occurring at a time when Covid-19 cases are spiking in the state of Florida.  Orlando will host the NBA rebooted season.

Of the rising figures, NBPA executive director Michele Roberts told ESPN: "Can't say I am surprised, given the state's approach to reopening. We are obviously clearly monitoring the situation. While we take some solace in knowing our players will not travel commercially to get to Orlando, that access to the campus is severely limited and, of course, all of the other health and safety protocols in place, the numbers will keep our attention. If necessary to add further restrictions respecting those third parties having access to the campus, we will seek to implement them."

Roberts added that by "third parties," she meant Disney staffers who will be servicing the hotels where teams are staying or providing other services at the resort.

She said it remains to be seen what restrictions -- if any -- might be possible given that many Disney employees are unionized.

That sentiment was relayed in interviews with several team officials throughout the league, including several general managers.

Said one head athletic trainer: "Everything that we know about Disney -- and we've read over the years -- is that you don't realize how many thousands of people work there, right? That's the magic behind it all -- the amount of staff and the amount of services that they provide. And they're in and out of the bubble."
