Browns re-opening facility after staff member tests positive for COVID-19

The Cleveland Browns were not at their team facility Wednesday morning.

Cleveland announced early Wednesday that it closed its facility after being informed that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. All "meetings will take place remotely while contact tracing is conducted to identify any potential high-risk close contacts," a statement from the team read.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters later Wednesday that the team was reopening the facility for the afternoon and will have a full practice.

This was the third time in the last eight days that Cleveland had closed its facility due to a positive test.

The Browns recently activated two players -- defensive end Myles Garrett and fullback Andy Janovich -- from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

No teams, including the Browns, were allowed to perform in-person team activities on Monday or Tuesday, per a mitigation measure taken by the NFL on Thanksgiving weekend.
