In an email sent to associates Friday, the Cubs informed their staff that two people, who participated in a March 8 training in the team’s premier clubs, have tested positive for the contagious virus. The tests were received last Monday and Tuesday — 15 and 16 days after the workshop.

On Friday, the U.S. surgeon general identified Chicago as a hot spot for the coronavirus, expecting the number of cases to increase in the next few weeks.

The Cubs shut down their facilities after MLB postponed the start of the 2020 season. As of now there is no set date to begin the season, but officials are hopeful for an early June start.
