The league stated in its release that “players affected are currently asymptomatic or exhibiting mild symptoms and the League and team will continue to monitor their well-being.”
The OHL, which didn’t not have a season in 2020-21 because of COVID, previously mandated that all players, staff, officials and billets be vaccinated.
The suspension means at least three upcoming games involving the Wolves will be postponed: Wednesday in Sault Ste. Marie, Friday at home against the Barrie Colts and Saturday in Barrie.
The OHL did not identify the players or team personnel who had tested positive.
