Michael Bidwill encouraged everyone to continue practicing important measures against COVID-19 after the Cardinals owner left hospital.

Cardinals owner out of hospital after coronavirus treatment


Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill has been released from a hospital in Rhode Island after undergoing treatment for COVID-19.  

The team announced the news in a statement on Monday, saying that Bidwill – who tested positive for the novel coronavirus last week after spending time on the East Coast – had his symptoms subside over the weekend.  

"This week I learned first-hand just how serious COVID-19 is," Bidwill said in the statement. "I'm very fortunate to have this experience behind me and strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing the important measures to avoid it themselves.” 

The state of Arizona saw a large spike in confirmed COVID-19 cases at the end of June and beginning of July. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the state has reported over 44,000 new cases since July 1.  

The club said that Bidwill has been working remotely since NFL facilities were shut down in March.  

Despite a flurry of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. in recent months, the NFL still plans to open training camps by the end of the month and kick off the season on September 10.  

The league and the players' union have yet to come to an agreement on testing protocols and safety measures for the season.
