The first confirmed case occurred on Tuesday. Eight staff members tested negative while 20 players and 12 other staff members are still awaiting test results.

"The first confirmed case occurred this past Tuesday, June 16," the Phillies said in a statement.

"In addition, 8 staff members have tested negative for the virus, while 12 staff members and 20 players (both major league and minor league players) living in the Clearwater area are in the process of being tested and are awaiting the results of those tests."

Managing partner John Middleton added:

"The Phillies are committed to the health and welfare of our players, coaches and staff as our highest priority, and as a result of these confirmed tests, all facilities in Clearwater have been closed indefinitely to all players, coaches and staff and will remain closed until medical authorities are confident that the virus is under control and our facilities are disinfected."
