Reds spring training employee tests positive for coronavirus

At some point, “so-and-so tests positive for coronavirus” is the kind of thing that will not really be news — millions and millions will get it — but for now it still seems notable when it happens. To that end: the Cincinnati Reds announces a little while ago that an Arizona-based employee at their complex in Goodyear has tested positive for COVID-19.

All Reds employees who came in close contact with the individual are being tested and have self-quarantined. It’s unclear whether that includes any players or coaches or whether, for that matter, where, exactly, in the facility the person works. There should be more details soon.
