Two players from the Atlanta Dream have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus after the team traveled to Florida for the season at IMG Academy in Bradenton. Earlier today, the team announced that center Kalani Brown tested positive. The team’s statement on Glory Johnson:
Atlanta Dream forward Glory Johnson tested positive for the COVID-19 virus during the initial quarantine period after the team traveled to Florida. She is in self-isolation off of the IMG Academy property under the care of physicians. Johnson will miss the start of the 2020 season.
“About two weeks ago, I had tested positive for COVID-19, even after testing negative several times prior,” Johnson said. “Since then I have been isolated outside of IMG Academy and in quarantine. I am fine and have had no symptoms since testing positive. While in quarantine, I have focused on my self-care and resting my body for the upcoming season. I will be back on the court soon.”
The safety and health of Johnson is the highest priority to the organization and the team looks forward to her rejoining the active roster when it is safe for her to do so.
Out of respect for her privacy, Johnson will not be taking media interviews.
Earlier in the day, it was announced that Dream center Kalani Brown had also tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the start of the 2020 season.
