The Vikings suspended in-person club activities on Tuesday after their opponent from Sunday’s game, the Tennessee Titans, reportedly had three players and five members of their personnel test positive for COVID-19.
The Vikings lost to the Titans and will have to make sure none of their players got the virus from the Tennessee players or personnel members. Vikings’ players are off on Tuesdays but players were being tested. The Vikings announced on Tuesday afternoon that TCO Performance Center in Eagan would remain closed on Wednesday. The Vikings are scheduled to play at Houston on Sunday.
Here’s the statement the Vikings issued in the morning:
Today the NFL notified us that members of the Tennessee Titans organization have tested positive for COVID-19. As of this morning, we have not received any positive results from Vikings testing following Sunday’s game. Per the NFL protocol, we will suspend in-person club activities and close TCO Performance Center immediately. We will work closely with the NFL and NFLPA to monitor the situation, perform additional testing and determine when the facility can reopen. We will provide further updates regarding this week’s football schedule when appropriate.
The Titans have closed their facilities until Saturday, the NFL announced.
