Florida panthers covid-19

A good number of Florida Panthers stuck around in South Florida during the NHL’s break from play, but many got out of town and headed home.

Those players who came back returned to a COVID-19 hotspot.

Although the team is taking every precaution necessary in trying to keep players, coaches and their staff as safe as possible, there is no ignoring what is going on in the community the team calls home.

On Thursday, the Florida Department of Health said there were almost 14,000 new COVID-19 cases in state — which, according to the Miami Herald — is the second highest single-day total since the pandemic began in March.

Florida has a total of 315,775 confirmed cases.

Players for the Florida Panthers have been asked numerous times about the uncertainty which comes with living and working in a region hit hard by the coronavirus.

They do not seem to have much of a concern.
