NEW YORK — No additional members of the New York Mets have tested positive for COVID-19 since the team learned of two infections that caused several games to be postponed.

The Mets released a statement Saturday night saying tests taken Thursday night and Friday morning by the whole travelling party that returned to New York from Miami late Thursday night all came back negative.

Test results also were negative for close contacts of those who stayed back in Miami after Thursday’s series finale against the Marlins was postponed when two members of the Mets’ organization tested positive for the coronavirus.

All three Subway Series games against the crosstown Yankees at Citi Field this weekend were postponed as well.

The entire travelling party from Miami will continue to get tested every day and remain in self-isolation, the Mets said.

The team’s next scheduled game is Tuesday night at home against the Marlins. The Mets said they’ll wait for more schedule information from Major League Baseball.
