No new COVID-19 positives among teams in MLS bubble

  No new COVID-19 positives among teams in MLS bubble No new COVID-19 positive tests were returned by the 24 teams in Florida for the Major League Soccer is Back Tournament on Monday and Tuesday, the league announced. Tests were given to 1,227 people in the bubble at Walt Disney World, including players on 24 teams, referees and staff members and no one tested positive for the deadly virus that shut down the league season in March after only two weeks. The league pulled Dallas and Nashville from the World Cup-style tournament earlier this month due to a high number of positive tests from players on each club after arriving at Orlando for the event, which is being played without spectators.

(Reuters) - The National Basketball Association (NBA) said there were no positive COVID-19 results from its latest batch of testing, a day before the season restarts at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
