Officials say that the postponement comes out of an abundance of caution following one of Austin Bold FC’s covered persons testing positive for COVID-19, as part of weekly routine testing.
A covered person is on a league-approved list of people that is a combination of players, coaches, and staff who are tested on the league-mandated schedule. They are the only ones approved for on-field access at games and training.
Both matches will be rescheduled to a later date to be determined upon approval from the league.
