Vikings shut down after three Titans players, five staffers test positive for COVID-19


September 30, 2020


The Vikings and Titans played Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Now eight members of the Titans organization, including three players, have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Vikings suspended activities at their team facility for at least two days after learning Tuesday morning that three players and five staffers from the Tennessee Titans, the Vikings' opponent last Sunday, tested positive for COVID-19.

"The Titans will suspend in-person activities starting today. Likewise, the Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday, also will suspend in-person club activities," the NFL said in a statement. "Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments. All decisions will be made with health and safety as our primary consideration."

In response to the NFL's first team outbreak of this pandemic season, Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams Tuesday, saying, "This is not unexpected" and noting that league doctors have emphasized that "there will be players and staff who will test positive during the season."
