GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The NFL officially has its first COVID-19 outbreak.

The Tennessee Titans are shutting down their entire facility until at least Saturday after three players and 5 personnel tested positive for Coronavirus.

According to data released by the NFLPA, Green Bay has the highest infection rate among NFL cities.

“Our guys have done an outstanding job of being disciplined and taking care of themselves,” Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said. “Really it comes down to putting the team first. If one guy gets it, it can take down this whole operation.”

The center added he is unsure what the rules will be for the bye week that will come after the Falcons game.
