The Blazers haven’t officially started training camp and their practice facility is already closed down due to four positive tests by people within the organization.
So far we don’t know who tested positive for Covid, but it was smart by the Blazers to do the closing of the facility, continue testing, and do a deep clean of everything.
“Over the past four days, we have had three positive COVID test results within our organization. Out of an abundance of caution, having completed contact tracing, we are closing our practice facility today for deep cleaning while we run confirmatory tests” -Neil Olshey

It hasn’t been announced of when the Blazers can return to the facility to continue their individual workouts. Team workouts were supposed to start tomorrow morning with the first preseason game against the Sacramento Kings taking place on Thursday.
We’ll see how well the NBA does without a bubble. No other league has faired all that well as of late.
