MLS extends training moratorium

From league release:

NEW YORK (April 23, 2020) – Major League Soccer has extended the team training moratorium through, and including, Friday, May 15.  MLS training facilities remain closed to all players and staff with the exception of players requiring medical treatment or rehabilitation, under the direction of the team medical staff, that cannot be performed from the safety of their residence.

While MLS players are expected to remain in each club’s respective market, MLS will continue to review individual requests by players to relocate to another market by car, taking into account the totality of a player’s situation.

MLS will remain in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) on this continually evolving situation and provide further updates as they become available.

Realistically, we’re looking at further extensions down the road, too (though hopefully the rate of those – like the rate of spread in the coronavirus – will start to look amenable to en eventual return to the field).
