Two employees of the Chicago Cubs tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month, according to multiple reports on Sunday.
The team said both employees attended an annual training session at Wrigley Field on March 8.
The Cubs said the positive test results were received on March 23 and 24. The team sent out an email to staff members on Friday.
The club urged all staff members to follow guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and also issued a reminder to closely monitor their health.
The Major League Baseball season is currently on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, which also shut down the NBA, NHL and MLS, caused the cancelation of the NCAA basketball tournaments and the postponement of numerous other sporting events.
