The NFL will continue COVID-19 testing on a daily basis.

The league and NFLPA agreed to continue daily testing through Sept. 5, the union announced.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero later reported the league informed teams that testing would be continued “until further notice.”

“We will continue to monitor positivity rates within each club and relevant information from each team community to inform our assessment of testing frequency ahead of the regular season,” the NFLPA said on Twitter.

Sept. 5 is the Saturday before the start of Week 1, which kicks off on Sept. 10 with the Houston Texans visiting the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

The initial agreement between the league and union mandated daily testing for the first two weeks of training camp. The plan then dictated that if the positive COVID rate was at or below 5 percent, testing would move to every other day.
