For what it's worth, Teams runs perfectly if you install the Flatpak version.
I'm using it under OpenSUSE Leap, but since the purpose of Flatpak is precisely
to be distribution-agnostic, you might want to give it a spin with Flatpak
under CentOS.

Extra advantage: potentially intrusive applications like Teams, Skype and
Spotify thus get sandboxed in the Flatpak subsystem.
