PITTSBURGH, PA —Pittsburgh Pirates president Travis Williams has tested positive for coronavirus, the team announced Thursday. No other member of the organization has had a positive test.
“I have recently tested positive for COVID-19 after feeling the onset of symptoms on Monday evening,” Williams said in a release by the team.
“Fortunately, however, I followed the critical health and safety protocols that we have put in place, including wearing a mask as required, maintaining safe social distance and, upon the onset of symptoms, immediately isolating myself and getting tested which has prevented further impact to others.”
According to the Pirates, Williams has had no recent contact with any players, members
of coaching staff or the baseball operations staff, as the Pirates have been on a road trip.
Williams was named president of the Pirates in October 2019.
