Two members of Phillies staff test positive for COVID-19

While none of their players have yet tested positive for COVID-19 this week, the Phillies announced that a pair of staff members, one coach and one member of the home clubhouse staff, have tested positive for the coronavirus.

In response, the team has closed Citizens Bank Park and canceled all activities at the park “until further notice.”

The Phillies remain off this week following their exposure to a Marlins team that has now had 17 members in all test positive for COVID-19 during the opening weekend of the 2020 MLB season. Previously, one of the Phillies visiting clubhouse attendants tested positive early this week following close interactions with members of the Marlins.

It can take up to two weeks for symptoms to show up. Do we know how long it takes for someone infected to test positive?

If you get the nasal/throat swab or saliva test, you will get a false negative test result:

100% of the time on the day you are exposed to the virus. (There are so few viral particles in your nose or saliva so soon after infection that the test cannot detect them.)
About 40% of the time if you are tested four days after exposure to the virus.
About 20% of the time if you develop symptoms and are tested three days after those symptoms started.

The modern record of leading the league with just 7 home runs is in grave danger.
   6. Jeff Francoeur's OPS Posted: July 31, 2020 at 05:41 AM (#5967061)
The median incubation period was estimated to be 5.1 days (95% CI, 4.5 to 5.8 days), and 97.5% of those who develop symptoms will do so within 11.5 days (CI, 8.2 to 15.6 days) of infection. These estimates imply that, under conservative assumptions, 101 out of every 10 000 cases (99th percentile, 482) will develop symptoms after 14 days of active monitoring or quarantine.
