As NHL teams head to their respective Canadian " bubbles ", the league announced zero positive COVID - 19 tests among its players.

Trump urges people who have recovered from covid - 19 to donate blood plasma. The Washington Capitals went through their first full day in the bubble on Monday. The league reported only two positive tests at camp July 13-17. As of Sunday night, all 24 teams competing for the Stanley Cup

Just one day before players return to the ice for meaningful games, there is some good news from off the ice.  TSN’s Darren Dreger reports that there have been zero positive tests for COVID-19 since teams entered the bubble cities in Edmonton and Toronto last weekend.

Testing has ramped up over the past few days as Dreger notes that 1,500 tests are being conducted on a daily basis.  If that number seems high, it’s not just the players for each team who are being tested, but other team officials and executives are as well.  Each team was able to bring 52 people into the bubble, and all of them are tested each day.  If there winds up being a positive test, the league should know pretty quickly as Dreger adds that tests are being processed in under 24 hours.

  Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. has theory on coronavirus ‘agenda’ Porter also claimed he has never received a vaccine in his life. Murray noted that the University of Missouri, where Porter played college ball, requires all students to be up to date on certain immunizations. However, there are medical and religious waivers. Porter Jr. ended his response to the question with the following: "It is a serious thing. It's a real thing but this is being overblown." — Clevis Murray (@ClevisMurray) July 29, 2020 It’s possible Porter Jr. hasn’t been vaccinated. According to the University of Missouri website, students can apply for a medical or religious waiver.

So, basically, the NHL has become aware of 45 positive COVID - 19 test results since June 8. Since June 8, the NHL announced about 13,000 COVID - 19 tests have been administered. For those who believe this boils down to the NHL beating its chest about its process, note that the league ’ s made

The NFL, like MLB, will have no such bubble , and the cancelation of two MLB games today over COVID - 19 tests has to be raising concerns within the NFL about whether the season can proceed as scheduled. NHL announces zero positives among 4,256 tests originally appeared on Pro Football

Things certainly seem to be on the right track as earlier this week, the league announced that there were no positive tests from the final week of training camp.  Add that to Friday's news and it’s roughly two weeks since a positive test was recorded.  There is a long way to go to get to the awarding of the Stanley Cup in early October but so far, so good.
