SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Republic FC's game against Orange County has been postponed after the team learned of a positive coronavirus case from a previous opponent.
The team didn't specify which previous opponent has the positive coronavirus case, but in a statement said once they were notified, "Republic FC followed prescribed protocols developed in consultation with the USL and medical experts."
There were no positive coronavirus cases in the Republic FC clubhouse since its latest round of testing. USL and Republic FC just recently resumed play earlier this month.
