Report: Bourne’s coronavirus positive test shuts down 49ers facilities

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has been added to the reserve/COVID-19 list. He has reportedly tested positive for the virus.

His positive test has caused the team to shut down their team facilities. The shut down came just one day before the Green Bay Packers are scheduled to play in Santa Clara, California on Thursday night.

“The San Francisco 49ers were informed today that a player has tested positive for COVID-19 and the individual immediately went into self-quarantine,” the team said in a statement. “Our organization has entered the NFL’s intensive protocol and we are working with the league on contact tracing to identify high risk individuals. All team functions will be conducted virtually today.
