Ravens Shut Down Practice Facility after Multiple COVID-19 Positives

Published

The Baltimore Ravens have shut down their practice facility after multiple positive COVID-19 tests, the team announced on Monday.

The Ravens learned of positive tests on Sunday night — likely tests taken before their game with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday — and have communicated those results to the NFL.

“Late last night, we were informed that multiple members of the Baltimore Ravens organization tested positive for COVID-19, and those individuals immediately began to self-quarantine,” the Ravens said in a statement on Monday afternoon.

“We have started the process of contact tracing, and during this time, the Under Armour Performance Center will be close, with all team activities conducted virtually. We will continue to work closely with and follow guidance from the NFL, team doctors and our medical trainers.”

The Steelers are expected to host the Ravens at Heinz Field on Thursday. Per NFL protocols, contact tracing will be underway in order to determine the close contacts of the positive cases. Those players will not be able to participate in football activities for five days, which would rule them out of a Thursday game.

That game could be pushed back to a regular Sunday game if the Ravens’ circumstances dictate such a move.
