After learning Thursday that another individual tested positive for the coronavirus, the Bears closed Halas Hall and released the following statement:
"This morning we were notified that we had a positive COVID-19 test. As a result, the club has elected to pause all in-person football activities today and close Halas Hall. Instead, all meetings will be conducted virtually. The individual who tested positive has been contacted and has already begun self-isolation. We are working with the NFL medical experts to identify close contacts and follow the league's guidance. The health and safety of our team, players and staff are the highest priority."
The Bears took similar action Thursday, Nov. 5 after a player tested positive for COVID-19 and were able to return to Halas Hall and conduct practice the next day.
The Bears are scheduled to host the Texans Sunday at Soldier Field.
