The NFL has extended the virtual offseason program until at least May 29, amid a coronavirus epidemic.

A memo was sent to all 32 teams on Wednesday informing them that the virtual time was supposed to end this Friday and last at least two more weeks.

Even if a city where there is a franchise completes its local stay-home orders, players, coaches and staff are barred from attending their team’s facilities.

There is no change in the way teams can work for the time being, as coaches can still zoom in and hold classes with their players.

The memo confirms that all offshore workout programs will end June 26th, giving teams a break before their training camps open in July.
