The San Francisco 49ers and other teams may need to find a temporary new home after Santa Clara County on Saturday banned all contact sports from holding games and practices for the next three weeks. The 49ers have home games scheduled for Dec. 7 against Buffalo and Dec. 13 against Washington at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. “We are working with the NFL and our partners on operational plans and will share details as they are confirmed,” the team said in a statement.
Wake Forest is pausing all football team activities until at least Wednesday because of recent positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing. The announcement came shortly after the Atlantic Coast Conference said the Demon Deacons’ home game against No. 10 Miami for next Saturday has been postponed. In a Zoom call Saturday evening, athletics director John Currie said the program had a “handful” of positive tests and later referenced “four or five cases over the last four or five days.”
