49ers Without Home For At Least Three Weeks Due To County Ban

Coronavirus: San Francisco 49ers may require temporary home because of new restrictions

Record-shattering numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Santa Clara County have prompted anxious health leaders to issue new directives, the county health department announced on Saturday, Nov. 28. The county is also issuing a mandatory directive on travel, which strongly discourages leisure and nonessential travel, and requires anyone entering the county to quarantine for 14 days after returning from the travel of more than 150 miles.

The Coliseum "is not a viable option" for the 49ers to play games following Santa Clara County's latest health order issued in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus, The Athletic's Lindsay Jones reported Saturday, citing a source. The NFL calibrated the 2020 schedule such that the 49ers and Cardinals never play home games on the same day, allowing them to share a venue if necessary.

The county is also under a curfew order that begins at 10 p.m. through 5 a.m. San Mateo County has seen an 85% spike in COVID-19 cases between October and November, according to county health data.

28, Santa Clara County had 760 new cases of COVID-19 and 239 COVID-related hospitalizations, 71 of which are in the intensive-care unit, county officials said in a press release.

Williams also revealed he has contacted the teams affected, however, like the 49ers, none immediately responded to requests for comment.

"For those teams, they will not be able to play games or have practices where they have direct contact, within the county", Santa Clara County counsel James Williams said.

Cody said Santa Clara County has the highest case rate in the Bay Area, leading to the stricter rules.

Kevin Kurz, Sharks beat writer: Many Sharks players have been skating a few times a week in small groups at their practice facility, among them captain Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Evander Kane, Kevin Labanc and Patrick Marleau.

The San Jose State football program would also be affected by the regulations. The Cardinal have one scheduled home football game left on December 12 against Oregon State.

San Jose State officials will meet with county officials on Sunday to get more details and then will formulate a plan.
