49ers rookies, quarterbacks, and rehabbing players reported to the team last week for the first round of COVID-19 testing and went through a second round of testing on Sunday. Those players were allowed inside the facility this week.

The rest of the roster reported for its first round of COVID-19 testing today and will return on Friday for the second round. The players can be in the building as early as this weekend.
