MLS and Colorado Rapids Confirm Additional COVID-19 Positive Cases
NEW YORK (September 28, 2020) – Major League Soccer today confirmed that one additional Colorado Rapids player and seven more members of the club’s staff received confirmed positive tests for COVID-19. Today’s announcement follows the postponement of the Sept. 27 match between Colorado and Sporting Kansas City to allow for additional testing due to confirmed COVID-19 positive cases within the Rapids organization.  
After receiving the club’s COVID-19 test results on Sept. 24, the team closed its training complex and has not practiced since then. All players and staff who were confirmed COVID-19 positive cases entered self-isolation and players and staff that tested negative have been in self-quarantine. In addition, the club conducted contact tracing. Every member of the team, including players and technical staff, has conducted daily COVID-19 tests since Sept. 24 and followed MLS health and safety protocols. 
Further details regarding when the Rapids will resume training and the status of their upcoming match on Oct. 3 at the Portland Timbers will be available later this week.
