NOTE: Teams cannot release information about anything virus-related without consent from the player. Additionally, if a player is placed on the Injured List due to the virus, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the player tested positive. They could have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or they may have virus-related symptoms.
