Report: Member of Chargers Organization Tests Positive for Coronavirus


The NFL has had a relatively low amount of cases and scares regarding COVID-19, with the major case belonging to Saints head coach Sean Payton.

However, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a member of the Los Angeles Chargers organization tested positive for coronavirus.

In additional details published to ESPN, Schefter says that the diagnosis "came about two weeks after [the team's] offices were shut down on March 12," meaning only essential staff was present at the offices. Furthermore, Schefter reports that the Chargers "notified everyone who had been exposed to that employee and all were self quarantined."

The other two members of the Chargers organization mentioned in the initial tweet have not tested positive despite showing symptoms.

No player has publicly been reported to have tested positive for the virus, but there have been scares. For instance, Raiders linebacker Quentin Poling thought he had caught coronavirus back in March.
