1 positive COVID-19 case for Atlanta United

It was announced today that Atlanta United canceled in-person activity at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground on Tuesday out of an abundance of caution after one player received a positive COVID-19 result from Sunday’s testing and was confirmed on Monday.

 All other players and staff returned negative tests on Sunday during testing. 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.

Additional standard testing will be conducted Tuesday. Wednesday’s match against Orlando City SC is currently proceeding as scheduled.
