The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the more fortunate teams around the league this summer, joining only a dozen or so other clubs that have yet to have a player test positive for COVID-19.

Coach Pete Carroll was asked about the Seahawks’ success so far during a Zoom press conference Monday afternoon.

“We’re really pleased with the start,” Carroll told reporters. “Really absolutely pleased we did everything we could have done in the quarantine week. There’s a lot that goes into that, but it was trying to win the week really, so we competed our way through it, and I feel like we did that. As far as moving forward, what’s happening right now is we’re trying to get everything in motion so that we can operate at a really high level of taking care of our guys. We don’t want to leave any stone unturned of what it takes to make sure our guys are safe.”

Players spent the first week of camp undergoing COVID-19 testing, with three negative tests required before entering the team facility. While some players have been living at home, quite a few have been staying at a local hotel since the start of camp.

Monday marked the first day the team could take the field – in a limited capacity, however – and Carroll wants to make sure he and his players are doing so carefully.

“We’re in a ramp-up period just getting started,” Carroll said “We won’t be practicing like we like to practice for days ahead here, but at this time at least we’re on the field and we’re getting going and we’re starting to make the process come to life. We’re off to a really good start with our guys. One of the big emphasis to get rolling here was coming in under quarantine mentality, and we’re very fortunate that we tested our way through it and we had very good results.”
