The WNBA announced Monday that 99% of its players are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and all 12 teams have met the threshold for being fully vaccinated.

The league has not had a positive COVID-19 test since the start of the regular season on May 14. The Atlanta Dream's Cheyenne Parker had a positive COVID-19 test before the season began. She missed the Dream's first six games but then was cleared to rejoin the team, making her season debut June 4.

The WNBA teams returned to their in-market arenas this season after playing last season in a bubble in Bradenton, Florida.
