First MLS player tests positive for coronavirus
A player for the Philadelphia Union has tested positive for coronavirus. It is Major League Soccer’s first player case of the virus that has caused the suspension of the season.
The Union did not identify the player. He reported mild symptoms.
MLS suspended all league and team activities March 12. The Union said no other club players or staff would be tested because the case fell beyond the 14-day window of possible interaction with the player.
A member of the Seattle Sounders’ support staff and a sporting department employee at New York City FC previously tested positive for the virus.
