Reports: Multiple Blues test positive for virus


Multiple members of the St. Louis Blues have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple reports Friday night.

The Athletic first reported that Friday’s scheduled Phase 2 workouts for the team were canceled as a result of the positive tests. No workouts were scheduled for this weekend and the report said practices are expected to resume Monday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said no coaches or staff members are believed to have been infected amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Neither report specified the number of players testing positive, just saying it was more than one.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong told the Post-Dispatch any questions regarding the coronavirus should be asked of the NHL, and deputy commissioner Bill Daly told the paper: “We don’t intend to comment on this situation specifically, but I will confirm our view that the club has taken all appropriate steps in the circumstances, and remains vigilant following our procedures and health and safety protocols.”
