NFL: clubs working to confirm or rule out the positive tests
(NFL.com) – Saturday’s daily COVID testing returned several positives tests from each of the clubs serviced by the same laboratory in New Jersey.
We are working with our testing partner, BioReference, to investigate these results, while the clubs work to confirm or rule out the positive tests.
Clubs are taking immediate precautionary measures as outlined in the NFL-NFLPA’s health and safety protocols to include contact tracing, isolation of individuals and temporarily adjusting the schedule, where appropriate.
The other laboratories used for NFL testing have not had similar results.
