Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “NFL issues more than $1 MILLION in fines as 49ers, Broncos, Seahawks head coaches seen not wearing face masks during Week 2 games”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Three teams – Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers – were each hit with $250,000 fines after their head coaches were spotted not wearing face coverings during their teams' respective games over the weekend.

This comes after the NFL's executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent sent a memo last week to each of the league's 32 teams in which he said that coaching personnel must wear masks at all times, with the memo also detailing that a failure to adhere to this policy would lead to financial sanctions.

The memo was distributed to teams after it was noted that several coaches failed to correctly wear masks during week one of the season. 

"We must remain vigilant and disciplined in following the processes and protocols put in place by not only the league, union and clubs, but also by state and local government," the memo read.

"The NFL-NFLPA Game Day Protocol, which reflects the advice of infectious disease experts, club medical staffs and local and state governmental regulations requires all individuals with bench area access (including coaches and members of the club medical staff) to wear face coverings at all times."
