Virus on abstract background

An Arizona Coyotes staff member tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. 

“The staff member, who is in the Valley, is asymptomatic and feeling well, and is in isolation at his home. Individuals who had close contact with the staff member have been notified,” the team said, in a release.

According to the statement, all other Coyotes staff and players involved in the Phase 2 testing protocol have tested negative for COVID-19. 

“The Coyotes will continue to follow all of the NHL-mandated protocols for testing and risk mitigation,” said the announcement.

“The health and safety of our players, staff, fans, and community is our top priority.”

Training camps for the Coyotes and 23 other NHL teams resuming play are scheduled to open July 10, the NHL announced last week.

Phase 2, which allows teams to hold limited workouts with small groups at their team facilities, began June 8.
