They won't be segregated at training, but any Canberra Raiders players anything less than fully vaccinated will be returning to their own personal lockdown when they begin pre-season.
But the NRL could introduce a separate set of protocols for players who get a medical exemption from having the COVID-19 vaccine.
They're also working on how pay will be affected by any travel restrictions preventing them from playing.
The first group of Raiders return for pre-season on Monday, while the senior players begin on November 19.
Anyone who isn't double dosed with the vaccine will have to adhere to the Apollo B protocols, while those who are basically only have the same restrictions as the rest of society.
That means any unvaccinated Raiders - or who have only had one shot - can't go to restaurants, bars or cafes and they can't have any visitors to their home or visit anyone else.
Apart from essential activities, like food shopping, they can only go to training or games and then back home.
They'll get COVID tested twice a week and must wear a face mask at all times except when they're at home or when exercising.
Medical exemptions can be sought, but previous exemptions for things like the influenza injection won't be valid.
A new exemption will need to be applied for.
Last year the Raiders had three players - Josh Papalii, Joe Tapine and Sia Soliola - who were given medical exemptions from the flu shot so they could play in Queensland.
A majority of the Canberra squad have had at least one dose of the vaccine, but they do still have some players who weren't vaccinated.
"If you're not double vaxxed you're almost back to bubble protocols," Raiders football manager Matt Ford said.
"There's a reasonable number of restrictions that apply. We do have a few players in that boat."

The NRL's still working on how being unvaccinated will affect players' pay.
It could be some sort of sliding pay scale depending on how many games were missed.
Currently, the Victorian government has mandated vaccination for professional athletes to be able to train and play in the state - something the ACT government will not introduce in Canberra.
Medical exemptions were an exception to the rule.
That's put the future of Melbourne Storm behemoth Nelson Asofa-Solomona under a cloud, with the New Zealand international voicing his reluctance to have the vaccine.
There could also be restrictions around games in NSW, where the government has introduced some restrictions on the movement of unvaccinated citizens.
The NRL's expected to release their draw early next week, so it's unclear whether the Raiders will have to travel to Victoria next season.
Early indications were that the Green Machine were starting their 2022 season by hosting the Cronulla Sharks at Canberra Stadium on March 11 as the Friday 6pm game.
But, given the rapidly evolving coronavirus landscape, Raiders chief executive Don Furner was mindful any measures introduced now might need to change by the start of the season.
"They'll probably come up with some sort of uniform policy I would imagine," he said.
"The thing is you can't make these sort of big calls now because come March next year things might be different.
"Like it has been for two years, it's a very fluid issue."
Furner's currently hiking the Canberra Centenary Trail, finishing up on Saturday.
He's raised more than $15,000 for Menslink, which included a $1000 donation from Penrith Panthers chairman David O'Neill.
