Just about 24 hours after the Atlanta Falcons had to shut down their facilities due to multiple coronavirus tests coming back positive, the Colts are now doing the same after a handful of presumed positives on Friday morning. While Indianapolis plans to shut their doors for the day, the team is still in the confirmation process to make sure they are not dealing with a set of false positives.

If the tests are eventually deemed negative, the Colts will likely open their doors tomorrow, following the Falcons who are back open today.
As of now, the Vikings-Falcons and Bengals-Colts games are still on for Sunday.
