Ravens reveal 'at least' four strains of COVID-19 were found in team facility

Details about the Baltimore Ravens' COVID-19 outbreak continue to be revealed. 

The Ravens announced Saturday that the NFL discovered "at least" four different strains of COVID-19 in the team facility during the outbreak. Three of the four weren't spread within the organization, but the fourth one was considered highly contagious.

Baltimore's outbreak was one of the largest in professional sports to date. The team placed 23 players on the reserve/COVID list for 10 days straight, resulting in its prime-time Thanksgiving matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers being moved three times.

According to ESPN, the Ravens strength and conditioning coach was suspended for not always wearing a mask and contact-tracing device while at the team facility. 

The Ravens are currently scheduled to play the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday. There are no signs of that game potentially being canceled due to COVID-19.
