Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Monday.

Nagy, who is vaccinated, joins four players on the team's COVID list. Robert Quinn, Jimmy Graham, Elijah Wilkinson, and Caleb Johnson are currently in quarantine.

The Bears are now in enhanced mitigation protocol due to the rise of positive cases, The Athletic reports. All players and staff must wear masks at all times while in the team facility and will be subject to daily testing, regardless of vaccination status.

Nagy's status for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers is uncertain.

The 43-year-old said he feels good and the team doesn't have any other positive tests in the building, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

The coach will need to return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart before being allowed to rejoin the team.

Special teams coordinator Chris Tarbor will run any meetings the coach can't take part in.
