The New York Yankees and Covid-19
On July 4th, 2020, it was reported that members of the New York Yankees had tested positive for Covid-19. This was just days after the team’s general manager Brian Cashman had made a public statement saying that the team was taking every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus. So, how did the Yankees get Covid?
The Yankees and other teams test positive for Covid-19
On Sunday, the New York Yankees announced that three players and five staff members had tested positive for Covid-19. This news comes just days after the team’s opener against the Washington Nationals was postponed due to a positive test within the Nationals organization.
The Yankees are not the only team to have been affected by the virus. The St. Louis Cardinals, who were scheduled to open their season against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, have had at least seven players and four staff members test positive for Covid-19. The game was postponed, as was Monday’s game between the Cardinals and Pirates.
The Miami Marlins, who were scheduled to play the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, have also had several players and staff members test positive for Covid-19. The game has been postponed, as have the Marlins’ games against the Rays on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Yankees’ contact tracing efforts
When a player tests positive, the Yankees said they immediately begin contact tracing to identify every individual who may have come in close contact with that person within 48 hours of the positive test. Those deemed to have had close contact are then tested and, if they test positive, they are isolated and put on the injured list.
How Did the New York Yankees Get Covid?
The New York Yankees have been hit hard by Covid. As of now, thirteen members of the team have tested positive for the virus. It is unclear how the team contracted the virus, but there are a few theories. The most likely explanation is that the team contracted the virus from the Miami Marlins, who recently had an outbreak.
The Yankees’ travel schedule
During their 2019 spring training, the Yankees played 16 games in Florida and Arizona. They traveled to Boston, Toronto, Baltimore and Tampa Bay for regular-season games. On May 15, they traveled to London to play two games against the Boston Red Sox. In June, they made trips to Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit.
In July, the Yankees had a homestand against the Rays and Red Sox. They then hit the road again for a series in Toronto before returning home to face the Rangers. They traveled to Minnesota and Oakland in August. The Yankees’ final trip of the season was to Houston in September.
The Yankees played their first 10 games of the 2020 season at home before traveling to Baltimore and Toronto.
The Yankees’ clubhouse and locker room
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the borough of the Bronx, in New York City. The Yankees compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two AL teams based in New York City; the other is the New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the present-day Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming it the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the Yankees in 1913.
The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an entity controlled by the Steinbrenner family. They share Yankee Stadium with the Major League Soccer club New York City FC; both teams use a variation of blue for their uniforms and logos. The Yankees have won 27 World Series championships, 40 American League (AL) pennants, and lead all MLB franchises in wins (10,775), losses (7,557), games played (21,203), and hits (128,856).
What’s Next for the New York Yankees?
The New York Yankees are in the process of trying to figure out how some of their players got Covid. They are working with the CDC to try and determine how the virus was contracted. The Yankees are also taking precautions to make sure that the rest of the team does not get the virus.
The Yankees’ schedule
After a Covid-19 outbreak postponed their opener against the Washington Nationals, the New York Yankees are now scheduled to start their season on Thursday, April 1st against the Toronto Blue Jays. Here is a look at their upcoming schedule:
April 1-3: vs. Toronto Blue Jays
April 5-7: vs. Baltimore Orioles
