A relative of a St. Louis Blues employee has tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Sunday.

“The diagnosed individual is in self-isolation along with members of the individual’s family,” the Blues wrote in a statement. “All Blues’ staff who may have come into close contact with the employee have been notified.”

All members of the Blues organization have been requested to remain in self-isolation and monitor for symptoms.

The Blues are just the second NHL team to announce a positive test for the coronavirus, as the Ottawa Senators have already confirmed two cases. The Senators are still waiting for results from six members of the team.
