Rockford Rivets pause season after someone in organization tests positive for coronavirus

ROCKFORD – Out of an abundance of caution, the Rockford Rivets are pausing their 2020 season after someone within the organization tested positive for coronavirus.

“We have had a positive test within the organization and have determined that an indefinite pause to our season is the best course of action at this time,” General Manager Chad Bauer said.

Bauter said the club is going to continue to consult with officials and internally look at their options to determine if a return to action is  appropriate.

“Though we feel this may have been an isolated incident, we decided to take this course of action with the safety of our players, host families, employees, and fans in mind,” he said. “We feel fortunate we have been able to operate safely up to this point given the current environment.”

Friday’s road game against the Wisconsin Woodchucks has been postponed along with Saturday and Sunday’s games at Rivets Stadium.

The Rivets will announce further updates as they become available, Bauer said.

Fans who have tickets to future games are asked to hold onto them util a plan for remainder of the 2020 season is released. A refund and exchange policy will also be announced.
