GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur will address the media during a Green Bay Packers news conference. While the conference is routine, this latest press conference comes after reports that the NFL fined the team, Aaron Rodgers and Allen Lazard for COVID-19 violations.

The NFL completed its review into the Green Bay Packers' COVID 19 protocols Tuesday which has resulted in a fine of $300,000 for the team, while Rodgers and Lazard were each fined $14,650 according to ESPN.

The ESPN report also says the Packers organization cooperated with the investigation but the team was warned that future violation could result in increased discipline, including a possible change in draft position or loss of draft choice.

Rodgers' and Lazard's fines are the results of attending a team-sanctioned Halloween party while they were both unvaccinated.

According to a report by the NFL, the review also found there were a few instances in which both Rodgers and Lazard were not wearing face coverings inside the team facility, which is a violation of protocol.
