Multiple Blues players test positive for COVID-19
While the NHL isn’t identifying who has tested positive for the coronavirus or which team(s) they play on, it appears that the Blues have been hit by the virus.

As a result, the team has closed their practice facility through the weekend with the hopes of reopening on Monday. © William Purnell-USA TODAY Sports Some of the St. Louis Blues players have tested positive for COVID-19.
Indians outfielder Delino DeShields has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and doing well with minor symptoms, according to club president Chris Antonetti. Per MLB guidelines, DeShields will need to test negative twice before he can travel with the team again.

DeShields is the first Indians player to be named with the virus, but there weredisclosed by Antonetti last week. Though the Indians, along with the rest of Major League Baseball, have started “summer camp” with the goal of opening the season in mid-July, DeShields will obviously miss that and not be traveling until he is cleared.
The Indians added DeShields last December in the trade that also sent Corey Kluber to the Rangers in exchange for reliever Emmanuel Clase.
