The coronavirus isn’t going to impact the NFL. At least that’s what the league thinks.

Next week, the National Football League will be releasing it’s full 17-week 2020 schedule without any changes to it, despite the coronavirus still expected to be around in the United States.

League spokesperson Brian McCarthy confirmed to ESPn that the schedule will include its September 7th opener, the Super Bowl on its regular scheduled day, and visions of fans in the stands as normal.

Despite the confidence that the NFL season can go on without any restrictions, the league has still created contingency plans just in case but for now, it seems like the NFL is set on business as usual.
