Mullen says that they are still educating the team on COVID. They've been monitoring the curve and cases. He says there is not mask mandate, but that it is highly encouraged.

"We have not put any mandates in on anybody," Mullen says, "Our vaccinations continue to increase."

He joked that he didn't know the exact percentage of his team that is vaccinated, but that it's the kind of percentage number you could put on a report card and bring home to your parents.
