Browns briefly close facility after staffer tests positive

The Cleveland Browns briefly closed their practice facility Wednesday morning after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

“The facility is currently closed and meetings will take place remotely while contact tracing is conducted to identify any potential high-risk close contacts,” the team said in a statement. “The team will continue to consult with the league and medical experts on the appropriate next steps as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority.”

This is the sixth time since Nov. 13 that the facility in Barea, Ohio, has been closed to allow for contact tracing, according to ESPN.

The Browns later announced that practice would be held on Wednesday afternoon.

Cleveland (8-3) has won three straight games heading into Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans (8-3) in Nashville.
