In releasing the information, MLS says players or staff, who show risky behavior or have been in close contact with someone at risk, will be subject to a five-day quarantine. During this forced break, it will be impossible to participate in team training or a match. In addition, these people will have to undergo daily screening tests for a period of 14 days.

The unveiling of the protocol, in collaboration with the Players’ Association, is also marked by the distribution of a presentation sent to the 27 teams, in English, Spanish and French, as an educational tool for athletes and staff.

Remember that the MLS season will take off on April 16. CF Montreal will be in action on Saturday April 17, in Miami, against Toronto FC. This opening match for the Montreal club will also be broadcast on TVA Sports.
