The NHL’s secure zones remain free of any positive COVID-19 tests.
The league announced Monday that it has received zero positive tests for the fourth week inside of the Toronto and Edmonton bubbles. The last positive tests the league received came back in mid-July, with the NHL now operating for over a month without infection.
Per the NHL’s release, 4,644 tests were administered over the fourth week, with all members of the participating clubs’ 52-member travelling parties tested daily between Aug. 16-22.
The qualifying round of the post-season and the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs have both been conducted without a single positive test.
The second round began Saturday, continuing with two games on Monday night.
