Major League Soccer overall points leader Philadelphia Union and Minnesota United announced Wednesday their matches would be played despite each club having a player test positive for Covid-19.
The Union and the Loons each had all other players and staff members return negative tests, so Philadelphia will entertain Chicago while Minnesota plays host to the Colorado Rapids.
MLS players are tested every other day, including the eve of every match, but daily testing will now be done on any close contacts of the positive player.
The Union player, who is asymptomatic, will remain in self-isolation and be monitored by Union medical staff under MLS health and safety protocols while contact tracing is conducted.
The Loons player will also self-isolate under medical supervision while protocols are conducted.
The Rapids underwent an outbreak that sidelined the club for a month, returning to the pitch only last weekend.
The Union own a 12-3 with five drawn record, ahead of Toronto on goal difference for the overall league lead. Chicago is 11th in the East at 5-8 with six drawn, trailing Inter Miami on goal difference for the last playoff berth.
