Lacob said the Warriors are prepared to spend upward of $30 million to test every fan, according to ESPN.
A doctor consulting with the team is explaining what that could look like. Dr. George Rutherford, Epidemiology & Biostatistics Director at UCSF's School of Medicine, said fans could take rapid tests at the arena before home games. Season ticket holders could maybe get test kits sent to their homes. But the plan goes beyond fans.
"By everyone I mean everyone," said Dr. Rutherford, "All the fans, the ancillaries, the staff, the ushers, security, that's before you even get to the team members and coaches and stuff. So, by testing all the fans, the thought is there can be a very high level of security."
