Chiefs close facility after staffer tests positive for COVID-19
The Kansas City Chiefs closed their facility on Thursday afternoon after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced.
The Chiefs were notified of the positive test on Thursday morning. The team said the staff member is in self-quarantine and that contract tracing is underway.
Kansas City held practice on Thursday morning prior to closing the facility. The plan was to hold meetings virtually.
It was unclear if the facility would reopen on Friday.
“We’ll continue to monitor the situation and take any appropriate action necessary to protect the team and those around us,” the team said in a statement.
The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
