For the second time this week, the Senators have announced that one of their players has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).  The announcement did not name the player but noted that he took part in their recent California road trip through San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles.

A total of 52 people were on that trip including players, coaches, support staff and broadcasters.  Of those, 44 are currently showing no symptoms.  On top of the two players who have tested positive, there are six other people who have been tested between Wednesday and Friday, and the team is waiting for the results.

At the time, these are the only two known NHL players who have tested positive for the virus.  The Kings and Ducks announced earlier in the week that no one was exhibiting symptoms just yet, while the Sharks had a part-time SAP Center employee test positive.

Everyone who was on that trip was told to go into self-isolation on March 13, and the announcement indicated that those people continue to be quarantined.
