The Florida Mutineers Call of Duty team has tested positive for Covid-19. They will be playing matches from home until negative tests are returned.

The team usually plays their matches from the Misfits Gaming facility in Florida. That will not be possible with their players testing positive for the virus.

Florida announced that they will be playing from home on Twitter. They confirmed that the players will remain in isolation.

Mutineers said: “Our team has tested positive for Covid-19 and will be playing today’s matches from home.

“The players will remain quarantined until testing negative.”

The news raises concerns for Florida’s team with the Major 3 tournament in Toronto just 12 days away.

They should have enough time for their players to recover from the virus to be able to attend the event.

Canada does not require proof of a negative Covid test for entry into the country but the Call of Duty League will have their own rules in place for the event.

Florida had been playing some really good Call of Duty this weekend before the news. They beat Los Angeles Guerrillas 3-1 yesterday (May 20) in order to take home $10,000 as part of “Bounty Week”.

They are currently 1-1 in the qualifiers for Major 3, and will play against the Minnesota Rokkr later on this evening.

They’ll hope to be back at their facility next week if possible, with crucial matches against the Seattle Surge and Boston Breach still to come before heading north of the border.
