Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday continued to promote the COVID-19 vaccine as several of his players joined the COVID-19 squad.
Finder CeeDee Lamb and defended Israel Mukuamu and Malik Hooker were added to the list Tuesday, joining defensive captain Dan Quinn and beating Carlos Watkins, who was sent home from a team meeting Saturday against the Texans and concerns of COVID-19. The last two were the first members of the Cowboys to make a good test since the team opened camp.
According to a report from USA Today, Quinn and Lamb both received 100 vaccines; Mukuamu also received his second shot, but had not yet reached the 14-day benchmark following his second level. Another player he says can be added to the list pending retrying.
“Everyone has the right to choose his or her health and fitness. I trust you enough – to the extent that your opinion affects many others, ”Jones told Dallas 105.3 The Fan Tuesday. “Then all the good takes.
“I’m shaking hands here, but it all depends on how I look at our team, the Cowboys, or how I look at our team,” Jones said. “We have to look at ‘I’ at the door and go ahead with ‘We.’
When the team opened a camp in Oxnard, Calif., A Jones said all but the “few” players received the vaccine. A spokesman (via USA Today) said on Saturday that 93% of Cowboys players had been vaccinated, although the team did not specify whether this means players have received both levels.
Cowboys coaching staff, Quinn are included, and 100% fully vaccinated.
Below is Jones’ full statement on the vaccine:

Dallas’ next game will be at home against the Jaguars. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. According to NFL guidelines, people with complete immunizations who have been diagnosed with the virus should isolate themselves until they undergo a series of 24-hour PCR tests; those who are not vaccinated should isolate themselves for 10 days.
Close contacts with slightly different ideas: A person who has been vaccinated should be tested for the virus for 8 days, but can be found in groups if they are not. Those who do not have the vaccine and are in close contact should be separated for 5 days regardless.
