ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The Cardinals have had their first positive test for COVID-19.

An official for the team confirmed Monday night they have had their first positive test. It is currently unknown if the person who tested positive is a player.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the person is under self-quarantine and will be re-tested before the team moves forward.

Per Major League Baseball protocols, players will be tested every other day. If a person tests positive, two negative tests will be required before they are able to return to the team.

The Cardinals began entry screenings over the weekend prior to start of "Summer Camp."
