“Curtis is currently at home in self-isolation and experiencing no symptoms,” the team said. “We have evaluated close contacts, administered necessary point of care testing (no positive COVID-19 results) and implemented additional health and safety measures at UCHealth Training Center per NFL-NFLPA protocols.”
The Broncos said they’re in “regular communication” with the league office, the league’s chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills and team medical staff.
“We will take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our team, opponents and community,” the team added.
