Phillies being tested today at Citizens Bank Park


According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are being tested for COVID-19 today. They will not be permitted to stay at the ballpark after their test, and are being told to go straight home afterward.

The staff working in and around the ballpark will be getting tested today, also. But I’d hope they’d get tested every day for at least two weeks, given that the virus’s incubation period can be up to 14 days. Someone who tests negative today doesn’t necessarily not have the virus.
