The Tennessee Titans’ eight positive coronavirus tests from this week serve as a reminder that there is still an ongoing pandemic that we all should worry about.
Shorlty after news about this broke out, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick told reporters that is team has remained “vigilant” in its efforts to avoid contracting and spreading the virus. He added:
“It’s a very, obviously, a good reminder for all of us of the situation that we’re in. And regardless of what we’ve done or haven’t done up to this point, it really is about what we do each day going forward.”
He went on to say that the team’s COVID prevention protocols continue to evolve as the season progresses and feedback from players, coaches and staff members is received:
“We monitor everything every day. We don’t just do it when there’s a problem or something comes up somewhere else. We do it on a daily basis and make everyone — because this is everybody; it’s not just players, it’s players and coaches and staff and everybody else — make everyone aware. If we can do something better, then we talk to them about how we can do it better.
“So we try to monitor it the best we can, and we, I think, are pretty vigilant with — really, all of us; it’s not any one person — all of us keeping an eye on things. If anybody sees something that’s not the way we talked about it or maybe something that’s a little off or that we need to take a better look at, then we do that. We’ve had that situation come up multiple times as things have changed, as we went through the different phases of training camp, as we got into the regular-season schedule and then we traveled.
“There have been a variety of changes in our scheduling or in the way we’re located or where or how we’re doing things that have necessitated some type of modification or adjustment, so we continue to monitor that and do that.”
We hope no other players or team personell tests positive for the virus!
