ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that a member of the Chargers organization has tested positive for COVID-19 while two more employees are showing symptoms, as well.

It has also been confirmed that team owner Dean Spanos, general manager Tom Telesco, and head coach Anthony Lynn are not among the group that have either tested positive or are currently showing symptoms. According to team spokesman Josh Rupprecht, all those impacted are doing fine and “on the road to recovery.”

The Chargers likely dodged a bullet as their first staff member to be tested positive came after the team had to shut down their facilities back on March 12.

As of now, all staff members who were in contact with the employee around that time have all been informed and are in self-quarantine.
