Just hours after the confirmation of the start of the 2020-21 season, the Knicks released a statement on Tuesday night saying three-team employees tested positive for COVID-19.
They are all asymptomatic and under quarantine.

The MSG Training Center in Tarrytown, N.Y. has been shut down for a thorough cleaning. It is unclear when it will reopen.

Earlier in the day, the NBA Board of Governors unanimously approved a 72-game schedule slated to start on Dec. 22. This news comes eight days before the 2020 NBA Draft.

Free-agent negotiations will be allowed to start at 6 p.m. on Nov. 20, with signings permitted at 12:01 p.m. on Nov. 22. 

Since the reopening of the facility, all players and staff are required to get tested for the coronavirus daily, as directed by the league in a memo to teams.

The team said these positive tests were a result of “routine screenings.”

Team owner James Dolan tested positive for COVID-19 in late March.

As the state’s positivity rates rise to above 3% for the first time since May at 3.1%, Westchester County, has once again been deemed as a hot spot at 4.6%.

Back in March, the disease rapidly spread through the county after a case in New Rochelle, roughly 17 miles from Tarrytown.
