Report: NBA to Use Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement to Secure Bubble in Orlando

The prospect of making sure that the NBA’s bubble in Orlando, Fla. is secured will be the job of various law enforcement agencies, according to a new report.

When the NBA was formulating a plan to resume the 2019-20 season, the challenge of protecting players from possibly contracting the coronavirus over a two-month span was a major challenge.

While many players were eager to get back on the court, others had doubts about how such protections would be handled. In some cases, the concerns of certain players resulted in them opting out of joining their teams in Orlando.

The latest report offers no specifics about what percentage of different law enforcement agencies will be used, but it seems clear that the NBA is intent on making sure nothing is overlooked during this unprecedented situation.

Official games are scheduled to get underway at the end of next month, with teams reporting to Orlando earlier in July.

The highly contagious nature of the virus is the chief reason for the high-level attention to detail by the league, with recent days showing that the state of Florida has become a dangerous hot spot with regard to a spike in diagnosed cases.

The hope is that these efforts will result in no players having acquired the virus when the finals conclude in October.
