NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport obtained a memo sent to teams from Commissioner Roger Goodell that allows coaching staffs to be among the employees eligible to return to club facilities beginning Friday, June 5.
"This may occur only if your club has otherwise received necessary permission from state and local governments to reopen its facility", the memo began. At this point, it appears as if only the 49ers' coaches will be unable to access their facilities tomorrow (Twitter link via Rapoport).
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, his staff and the 90-man roster have been conducting voluntary offseason program meetings in a virtual format since April 20.
Earlier this week, the National Football League informed teams that all training camps must take place at team facilities to ensure the protection of players, coaches and staff. The County has applied for a modified Phase 1 of the Safe Start plan that would allow for limited openings of more business, and which would likely clear the way for the Seahawks to have coaches return to their facility.
The NFL has been allowing teams to have up to 75 employees in team facilities but no players or coaches (other than players who are in an active physical rehab program).
The league further noted that teams can have up to 100 people in their facilities at any one time (subject to state and local regulations, of course).
The NFL's decision Thursday is seen as another step in a positive direction toward the league being able to hold training camps in July and proceed on course with the 2020 season. In addition, multiple coaches tell Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com that they will remain away from facilities until training camp, in spite of today's memo (Twitter link). That move will widen the spectrum of National Football League personnel in facilities to include operational staffers, front-office personnel, coaches, medical and training staff, as well as players who are receiving injury or rehabilitation treatment.
