The Mets and Yankees released a joint statement about working with the DOH to bring players back from Florida by July 1st.
The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut announced earlier today that they will impose a 14-day quarantine on visitors from states with high coronavirus infection rates. That list includes Florida, which happens to be where Mets and Yankees players have been preparing for a season that may or may not happen. But now that Major League Baseball has a tentative plan to start a season that, again, may or may not actually happen, players have to make their way back to Citi Field in Queens and Yankee Stadium in The Bronx to report for spring training by next week.
“Major League Baseball and spring training, we agreed to last week,” Cuomo said at today’s press conference. “The health commissioner is working on a health protocol with them, and that started last week. And that’ll be subject to a separate protocol, done between the state and the teams coming back to spring training.”
