CLEVELAND — The Browns have reopened its facility Friday after a player tested positive for COVID-19, according to a statement from the Cleveland Browns. The organization said the facility reopened after contact tracing was completed and zero high-risk close contacts were identified.

The individual, who was not named by team officials, has immediately self-isolated and the facility is closed while contact tracing is being conducted.

Earlier in the day, the team said they would continue to hold meetings remotely, and said they were determining the appropriate next steps, “as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority."

After a bye week last weekend, the Browns are scheduled to play the Texans in Cleveland on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield was placed on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday as a precaution after a staff member tested positive for the virus. Mayfield was one of the team members who was told to isolate after contact tracing. He tested negative multiple times and was activated from the list on Wednesday.
