Second Ottawa Senators player tests positive coronavirus
The Ottawa Senators announced on Saturday that a second member of their team has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
They have not revealed the names of the players that have tested positive.
According to the Senators, both players were part of their three-game road trip through California (Anaheim, Los Angeles, and San Jose) before the 2019-20 NHL season was paused.
There were 52 team employees on that road trip, including players, team staff, media, other guests and the flight crew.
Out of that group, eight have experienced symptoms and have been tested. So far, there have been two positive tests while they are still awaiting results on tests that were conducted on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week.
The remaining 44 people that were on the trip have yet to show any symptoms. All are being instructed to remain in self quarantine.
