    Atlanta United put on pause after player produces confirmed positive COVID-19 test result

    Atlanta United announced a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result from one of its players Monday afternoon that will cause Tuesday’s training session to be canceled ahead of a planned trip to Orlando Wednesday night.

    All MLS players and tier one staff undergo Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests every other day, including the day before and after each match. The confirmation of a COVID-19 case occurs when the individual receives two consecutive positive test results. For this case, the initial positive resulted from Sunday’s testing and was confirmed on Monday, according to the club.

    As of now, that game is still scheduled as planned, but the entire team and training ground operations staff will be tested tomorrow before further arrangements, if any, are announced.

    All other players and staff returned negative tests on Sunday during routine testing, according to the club. Additional standard testing will be conducted Tuesday. No other Atlanta United players or staff are currently exhibiting symptoms.

    In accordance with local and league guidelines, the individual will remain in self-isolation and be monitored by club medical staff under a strict and detailed protocol. At this time, the individual is asymptomatic. The club is working closely with local health officials to conduct contact tracing for those who came in close contact with the individual.
