In this Saturday, May 9, 2020 photo, photographer Jason Vinlove, right, gets tested for COVID-19 antibodies before covering UFC 249 mixed martial arts event in Jacksonville, Fla. There is no universal playbook for coronavirus testing in professional sports. Protocols and procedures, guidelines and handbooks, they could be as different as the rulebooks that govern leagues around the world. UFC performed nasal swabs and/or blood tests for roughly 1,200 people on site during its weeklong stay in Jacksonville, part of the mixed martial arts behemoth’s health and safety protocols.
