The NBA has reduced the COVID protocol isolation time to six days for asymptomatic players and coaches who test positive for COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced people can exit isolation after five days if they are asymptomatic.
While isolation can end after six days for those who are asymptomatic, players or Tier 1 personnel who return a positive or inconclusive result will still get tested through 10 days. If someone gains or regains symptoms or has a cycle threshold value below 30, they must reenter isolation. Players who return two consecutive negative PCR tests taken within 24 hours can leave isolation.
