Stephen: Ottawa Senators report NHL’s first COVID-19 case
An Ottawa Senators player has tested positive for the coronavirus, marking the first known case to hit the NHL. ESPN reports the team revealed the news on Tuesday night. The Senators did not share the player’s identity, but said his symptoms are mild and that he’s in isolation. “The Ottawa Senators are in the process of notifying anyone who has had known close contact with the athlete and are working with our team doctors and public health officials,” the team said in a statement. “As a result of this positive case, all members of the Ottawa Senators are requested to remain isolated, to monitor their health and seek advice from our team medical staff.” The NHL paused it season last week due to concerns over the spread of the virus.
