Cubs-Cardinals game postponed due to COVD-19
Following an additional positive test for COVID-19 by a St. Louis Cardinals player, tonight’s scheduled game between the Cardinals and Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium has been postponed to allow for additional testing and to complete the contact tracing process. Major League Baseball will continue to provide updates as they become available.
Just updating the numbers here: the #STLCards have 14 positive Covid cases in all, eight of which are players. Testing and contact tracing in the next 24 hours will determine if the rest of this series can be played. Sunday doubleheader in play.— Mark Saxon (@markasaxon) August 7, 2020
