Atlanta Falcons shut down facility after single confirmed COVID-19 case

The Falcons reopened their facility on Friday, a day after closing it after a member of the organization had tested positive.

The Falcons, citing "an abundance of caution", announced that their operations Thursday would be conducted virtually.

One source told Schefter that there were four positive tests, but a Falcons official said the team is "not at four confirmed".

The NFL's updated rules on isolating people who have been in close contact with people who tested positive could make it harder for the Falcons to still play this week depending on how many people were in contract with the infected party.

On Thursday morning, ESPN sports reporter Adam Schefter initially reported, "Falcons are shutting down their facility after multiple positive tests, sources tell ESPN". "The health and safety of our team is our highest priority".

Receiver K.J. Osborn and cornerback Kris Boyd also will not play against the Falcons, due to hamstring injuries.

The stringent precautions - including daily testing, mandatory personal protective equipment and virtual team meetings - were installed after Falcons rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson was placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list.

The Falcons have followed all protocols in the wake of Cominsky's positive test and their Week 6 matchup vs. the Vikings is on as scheduled, Pelissero adds.
