Last week it was reported the Blue Jackets had ‘several’ players test positive for COVID-19. However, the latest reports were that symptoms for players were ‘mild’ and that the facility will reopen this week. So I guess that’s good news right?
#CBJ players are returning to Nationwide Arena this week after a two-week break following a COVID-19 outbreak.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) November 30, 2020
Club is doing COVID tests, obviously, but also cardiac testing on players, per GM Jarmo Kekalainen, before they’re permitted to return.
#CBJ have declined to say which players were diagnosed positive or how many players were infected, except to use the word “several.”— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) November 30, 2020
But early indications, per spokesman, are that infected players experienced nothing more than mild symptoms.
