Florida has declared pro sports as an essential service:

Pro sports are now allowed to return in Florida, including sports employees, media members, etc. This means the NBA can resume games in Florida in empty arenas (no fans) if they decide.

Yes, they’re bad so it only makes sense for Florida to allow 50 or so people to gather for a game. Yep, it’s Florida and the entire state is jacked up when it comes to politics and law. Done

I guess that means Dana White will be having UFC fights in Florida.
Boxing will be following suit. Interesting to see what the NFL does.

I believe the NFL has stated they will allow teams to have Virtual Positional Meetings (Coaches going over Playbook / Whiteboard concepts with players Online) during the OTA period.

But No team will be allowed to hold Organized On-the-field team activities until all 32 teams have been cleared to re-open their facilities.

So the Bucs, Dolphins, and Jags still won't be allowed to report to their team facilities and practice on the field together until the rest of the country can in this scenario...

The NFL has already stated that nothing will happen until all 32 teams are cleared to play. So I'd guess this won't impact the NFL at all.
