Early Friday morning, the Indianapolis Colts closed the team’s practice facility on the city’s northwest side after four individuals reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. However, the team said late Friday morning the tests turned out to be false positives.
It is not clear if the people who tested positive were Colts players. In a statement, the team said the samples of the four people were re-tested and confirmed to be negative for COVID-19.
“After consultation with the NFL and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Allen Sills, the team will open the practice facility this afternoon under the league’s intensive protocol and will continue preparation for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati,” the team said.
The Colts are currently scheduled to face the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday.
