SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have shut down their facility after receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for the coronavirus but are still scheduled to play Green Bay on Thursday night as of now. 

The team says Bourne immediately went into self-quarantine after getting the diagnosis. He was later placed on the COVID-19 list. 

The 49ers also placed rookie receiver Brandon Aiyuk, receiver Deebo Samuel and offensive tackle Trent Williams on the COVID-19 reserve list because they were in close contact with Bourne. All three players will miss Thursday's game.

Samuel was already sidelined with a hamstring injury.

A person familiar with the plans says the game against the Packers is still set to be played as scheduled. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league hasn’t made any announcement.
