Minnesota Vikings’ ICO Eric Sugarman tested positive for coronavirus

Minnesota announced that the team’s head athletic trainer, Eric Sugarman, who’s also the Vikings’ Infection Control Officer in the battle against COVID-19, has tested positive for coronavirus.

Sugarman is the Vice President of Sports Medicine, too. Members of Sugarman’s family have tested positive, according to the Vikings. Sugarman said in a statement that they are experiencing “mild symptoms.”

The team said in a statement that Sugarman did not have recent contact with players and that no additional cases within the Vikings front office have been identified at this time.

“Eric immediately shared his results with the organization and began to follow the previously established comprehensive protocol created by the NFL and national and local health experts,” the Vikings said in a statement. “Eric and his family are currently in self-quarantine and providing daily updates on their well-being.”

The Vikings also said that Sugarman will continue to virtually fulfill his role, as much as possible, as the team’s ICO.
