The St. Louis Cardinals learned late last night that two players have tested positive for COVID-19 in testing that was conducted on Wednesday, July 29 prior to their game against the Twins in Minneapolis, and have instructed the team’s players and staff to self-isolate in their Milwaukee hotel rooms until further notice.

The team did not leave their hotel this morning for Miller Park.

The Cardinals were scheduled to play the Milwaukee Brewers this afternoon. Major League Baseball has announced that today’s game against the Brewers is scheduled to be made up as part of a double-header on Sunday, August 2 (1:10 p.m. CT).

The team is currently conducting rapid testing of the entire traveling party, has implemented contact tracing, and will continue to self-isolate.

Friday's scheduled game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park has been rescheduled as part of a traditional doubleheader on Sunday, August 2nd at 1:10 p.m. (CT). The rescheduling as a result of two positive COVID-19 tests in the Cardinals’ organization is consistent with protocols to allow enough time for additional testing and contact tracing to be conducted.

“We are supportive of Major League Baseball’s decision to postpone today’s game and look forward to playing our home opener as soon as conditions safely allow. The health and safety of our players and employees are, and will continue to be, our top priorities." David Stearns, President - Baseball Operations and General Manager.

Saturday’s game between the Clubs will remain as scheduled for 6:10 p.m. (CT). Major League Baseball will continue to provide updates as appropriate.
