The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

The Georgia Republican, who has been actively campaigning for the state’s Jan. 5 runoff against Democrat Raphael Warnock, took two Covid-19 tests on Friday morning before appearing with Vice President Mike Pence at a campaign rally. The rapid test came back negative, but Loeffler, 49, learned on Friday evening that her PCR test — a more accurate sampling — came back positive, according to Loeffler’s spokesman, Stephen Lawson.

  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its guidance on self - isolation for people who test positive for COVID -19.

Self - isolation is when you do not leave your home because you have or might have coronavirus ( COVID -19). This helps stop the virus It's a legal requirement to self - isolate if you test positive or are told to self - isolate by NHS Test and Trace. You could be fined if you do not self - isolate .

Loeffler’s third test on Saturday morning came back “inconclusive,” the campaign said late Saturday.

“Senator Loeffler followed CDC guidelines by notifying those with whom she had sustained direct contact while she awaits further test results,” Lawson added. “She has no symptoms and she will continue to follow CDC guidelines by quarantining until retesting is conclusive and an update will be provided at that time.”

Loeffler’s campaign events have come under scrutiny for not adhering to CDC guidelines. Specifically, the senator has held indoor, largely mask-less events, including one last week with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

Loeffler, who was appointed to her seat earlier this year after Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) retired, joins seven other senators who have contracted the virus this year and two others who tested positive for coronavirus antibodies. Just this week, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.) revealed positive diagnoses.

Georgia’s twin runoffs are set to determine which party controls the Senate come January, so Loeffler and her counterpart Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) have been maintaining busy schedules criss-crossing the Peach State. Perdue is facing off against Democrat Jon Ossoff as he seeks a second six-year term in the Senate.
