Two members of the Philadelphia Phillies staff tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday, the club announced, and all activities at Citizens Bank Park have been called off.

The positive tests — a member of the coaching staff and a member of the home clubhouse staff — forced a cancellation of this weekend’s series against the Toronto Blue Jays. No players have tested positive, according to the Phillies.

Philadelphia hasn’t played since Sunday.
