As #Phillies await results of Monday tests, which will determine if they play tonight, an important note within this story: on average, it could take up to four days after exposure to COVID-19 to test positive.

I have been waiting for the fallout to really hit from the Marlins players getting hit so severely with Covid-19. MLB owners had an emergency meeting about what to do with the season. I am sure they are going to push on with the season and if they don't nip this in the bud with the players having team meetings to keep playing games it could get ugly.

The Marlins learned before Sunday’s game that three players had tested positive for COVID-19. So they held a player’s meeting to decide if they should play against the Phillies. Can’t find that protocol in MLB’s 101-page manual.— Matt Breen (@matt_breen) July 27, 2020
Shouldn't this have been decided by MLB officials and not to a team meeting? Maybe this game
should have been treated as a rain out. Meaning it should have been postponed and added to the back
end of this shortened season if need be. I don't get this. Now the Marlins have a total of eleven players
and two coaches with Covid-19. Did any of these players have contact with the Phillies players while
on field and if so, how many of the Phillies are going to get Covid-19. The whole message since this
pandemic started was be preventative with the virus.
