Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll will miss the next few days of training camp after testing positive for COVID-19, the team announced on Monday.
The team released a statement saying that Carroll tested positive on Sunday and had “mild symptoms”.
“He fully vaccinated and have mild symptoms“by staying at home,” the statement said. “Carroll is in touch with the coaching staff and will be participating in team meetings almost until he returns to the facility.”
The NFL suspended its COVID-19 protocols back in March, no longer requiring mandatory testing of players, staff, or masks unless otherwise directed by state and local laws. They are expected to continue to monitor and report symptoms.
Anyone who tests positive is still subject to a five-day isolation, the NFL told clubs back in June, citing CDC advice.
Arizona Cardinals defender Kyler Murray also tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.
According to reports, head coach Cliff Kingsbury told reporters he was experiencing minor symptoms and would miss the next few days of training.
