Report: Steelers Close Practice Facility Due to Potential COVID-19 Issue

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Steelers have closed their facility due to a possible COVID-19 issue, according to a report by Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The team had not had to close its facility throughout the entire last month of the 2020 season, largely avoiding the COVID-19 issues that plagued other teams.

Cornerback Joe Haden tested positive early in January and missed the team’s final two games.

The Steelers’ opponent in those final two games, the Cleveland Browns, suffered a significant, weeks-long outbreak that forced Cleveland to play shorthanded in both matchups against the Steelers.

After losing to the Browns on Sunday night, the Steelers do not have any more formal practices or workout scheduled this season, but the team’s facility is generally open to players that are still undergoing medical treatment and for those players that wish to use it to work out.
