As the world opts for a reopening the coronavirus pandemic hinders most of the progress and in surprising ways too.
Owing to the worldwide lockdown since April the world came to a standstill. Businesses were shut down and economies came at a standstill or took a downward turn. Games scheduled had to be postponed indefinitely.
Now in the wake of an attempt at restarting everything, the Vikings face a surprising turn of events.
Just a day before the Viking veterans were scheduled to report to their training camp, the team announced an unexpected event and the calendar changed.
On Monday, the team announced that Eric Sugarman, their head athletic trainer has tested positive for the coronavirus. Eric Sugarman, as reported, is also the person in charge of the team’s Covid-19 prevention strategy as the Vikings’ infection control officer.
In Monday’s statement, the team announced that Sugarman along with his family members who tested positive for the coronavirus are kept in self quarantine currently.
As an additional relief, the Vikings announced that people in close contact with Sugarman were also tested. However, no players are yet infected.
