Sporting Kansas City has a Covid + Player

By Sean McCaffery, November 6, 2020

Despite this one unfortunate positive the rest of the team continue to be symptom free and testing negative.

Earlier this week, the positive test was known, he then self-isolated following the system in place. His isolation will remain in place until  cleared medically and kept up with on a daily basis with the medical staff of the team. The team began contact tracing in advance of closing out the regular season Sun. @ RSL, 5:30 p.m. CT.

The MLS procedure is for all athletes to submit to Polymerase Chain Reaction testing every other day and the day before games, 2 positives make it a confirmed case. Interesting as earlier there were more false negative than positive tests.

We wish the player all the best toward a fast and full recovery.
