The Colts wrote on Twitter that the team will work remotely.

The Indianapolis Colts closed their practice facility after "several individuals" tested positive for COVID-19, the team said Friday.

On Thursday, the team conducted all work virtually after one positive COVID-19 test was recorded. We will know more soon.

The Indianapolis Colts released a statement Friday afternoon that after retesting the samples have been confirmed to be negative for the COVID-19 virus and will continue to prepare for Sunday's game. The Falcons worked remotely Thursday after a member of their coaching staff tested positive, according to a person familiar with the result.

The proposed plan would see the Test team travel to Sri Lanka and a white-ball squad play in Pakistan, simultaneously. The player, who is approached for fixing, is understood to have not played worldwide cricket for Pakistan.

Other teams have closed their facilities due to concerns about COVID-19 but maintained their schedules. What we're really trying to determine is: "What do we think is the risk of ongoing transmission?"

"This morning, we were informed that several individuals within our organization have tested positive for COVID-19", a statement from the team read.

Closing the facility is the first step in the National Football League and NFLPA protocol to ensure teams stay as healthy as possible, even if a day or two of practice and meetings is interrupted.

The Carolina Panthers, who played the Falcons last Sunday, announced Wednesday they were operating under enhanced coronavirus protocols. Sills said Thursday that about 10 teams had been subjected to the enhanced protocols to that point.
