The MLS announced players may begin to use outdoor team training fields for individual workouts.
However, they have to do it in compliance with detailed health and safety protocols that were created.

“All plans must be reviewed and approved by the club’s medical staff and local infectious disease expert before submitting to MLS.”
“Every club will designate a member of the staff to oversee adherence to MLS-recommended protocols and club-specific implementation plan.”
“In addition, each club will also be responsible for confirming communication of these protocols to players and team staff.”
