The 49ers are officially shutting down the club's facility in Santa Clara after a Wednesday morning report that there has been a positive COVID test for a player. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that Kendrick Bourne has tested positive.

Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area had the original scoop.

The 49ers followed up the reports with an official statement, which confirmed the positive test but did not name a specific player.

"The San Francisco 49ers were informed today that a player has tested positive for COVID-19 and the individual immediately went into self-quarantine. Our organization has entered the NFL's intensive protocol and we are working with the league on contact tracing to identify high risk individuals. All team functions will be conducted virtually today.

"The health and safety of our players, staff and community are the organization’s highest priority. We will continue to work closely with the NFL and medical professionals and will follow their direction."

The news comes just a day before the 49ers are slated to host the Packers for Thursday Night Football from Levi's.
