Blackwater, TNT put into isolation as Elite player tests positive

The writing was on the wall.

Days after being in contact with a referee who became classified as a probable case for COVID-19, a player from Blackwater tested positive.

The PBA bared as much during a presser Sunday together with Bases and Conversion Development Authority and Clark Development Corporation.

The player has been extracted from the bubble in Clark and is now at the Athletes’ Village in Capas, Tarlac for quarantine.

With this, BCDA chief Vince Dizon recommended for the isolation of the entire Elite, thus the suspension of their 4:00 p.m. match with Rain or Shine later.

Also isolated is TNT since it faced Blackwater last Thursday — a day after the league reported the suspected case inside the bubble.

The suspected individual was a ref who, according to reports, was among those who worked Blackwater’s match versus Alaska.

That game official, though, has yielded negative results in both of his antigen and RT-PCR tests, Dr. Raul Canlas announced.
