Concacaf Statement – Haiti Delegation COVID-19 Testing

All national teams participating in this summer’s Concacaf Gold Cup are following strict health and safety protocols, including regular COVID-19 testing.

Ahead of the start of the Gold Cup Group Stage, all competing national teams went through several rounds of testing. In COVID-19 testing carried out last week, five Haiti players and one assistant coach returned a positive test result.

All of the individuals were immediately isolated and Concacaf has ensured that they and the Haitian Football Federation have been offered the necessary support.

In an abundance of caution, following those positive test results Concacaf insisted that the entire Haiti delegation isolate and carry out multiple rounds of additional COVID-19 testing. From those multiple additional rounds of testing, no further positive test results were returned.

Tonight’s match between Haiti and USA will go ahead as scheduled at Children’s Mercy Park, Kansas City, at 8:30pm ET (7:30pm local).
