The Los Angeles Chargers have officially been hit by COVID-19, with one person testing positive and two others in the organization experiencing symptoms.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on this breaking news Wednesday, noting owner Dean Spanos, general manager Tom Telesco and head coach Anthony Lynn were not among the group testing positive or experiencing symptoms.

Thankfully, there is good news: “Everyone is doing well and is on the road to recovery,” team spokesman Josh Rupprecht said, per Schefter.

This is not the first instance of an NFL team being affected by the coronavirus pandemic. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was also hit by COVID-19, and the league lost one of its legends when kicker Tom Dempsey passed away due to complications from the virus.
