As of now, the Quakes are the only team that has not resumed training. The NPSL and USL League 2 seasons have been cancelled, while NISA is planning to resume in the fall. Right now, only two players have tested positive for Covid-19 so expect a routine amount of testing leading up and during the rescheduled games.
