Colorado Rapids return to training for first time since positive COVID-19 tests

For the first time since reporting positive COVID-19 tests on September 24, the Colorado Rapids have resumed training Monday,

A Rapids player and three members of the club staff tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 24, which resulted in the postponement of a Week 14 match against Sporting Kansas City, which has since been rescheduled. Four days later, one additional Rapids player and seven more members of the club’s staff tested positive before their Week 15 match against the Portland Timbers was postponed with the announcement of an additional two players and one staff member testing positive.

In addition to conducting contact tracing, all Rapids players and staff who were confirmed COVID-19 positive cases entered self-isolation. Players and staff who tested negative have also been in self-quarantine.

Every member of the team, including players and technical staff, has followed MLS healthy and safety protocols, including conducting daily COVID-19 tests since Sept. 24.

The Rapids are scheduled to face LAFC Wednesday (9 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US; on DAZN in Canada) at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
