Toronto Raptors announce 3 positive COVID-19 tests in organization


The Toronto Raptors announced Monday that three members of their organization have tested positive for COVID-19.

“All three are, and will continue to, self-isolate away from the rest of the organization,” the team said in a statement.

The Raptors added that follow-up testing and contact tracing has “so far revealed no spread to other members of the Raptors organization.”

As a result of the pandemic, the Raptors have relocated to Tampa, Florida, for at least the start of the NBA season. The Canadian government feared that constant travel into and out of the United States could pose a public health risk.

The Raptors are scheduled to open their three-game preseason slate Saturday against the Charlotte Hornets.
