Functionally yes, with a very small window. You basically need 4-5 days since exposure for an accurate test result. So if you get a positive test, team isolates for 4 or 5 days (I would pick 5 for greater accuracy, but the NBA bubble used 4), and continue to test along the way. If everyone is clear then, you can play.Devil's advocate--are you saying there should be an automatic cancellation of game if there's a positive test?
Under this protocol, Cam's positive was too close to allow the Chiefs game to happen, but might have saved the Denver game this week. If no player has been exposed to Gilmore since Monday, and everyone isolates then negative testing players on Saturday could be allowed to play Sunday.
