The teams are preparing to return to action at the league’s World Cup-style “MLS is Back” tournament scheduled to run July 8 to Aug. 11 in the Orlando area.
The league lifted its team training moratorium on June 4, pending approval of individual club plans by local authorities and the league.
In advance of full team training, players have to complete a physical examination and pass two COVID-19 tests. Players, coaches and select staff must pass tests every other day to attend training.
Players can go inside their training centre as long as they maintain physical distancing.
