An unidentified New York Giants player has tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting the team to work remotely Tuesday.

The Giants said in a statement they learned of the result Monday night and are working with the NFL’s chief medical officer.

The player was immediately isolated and contact tracing began. Two close contacts, both staff members, were told to remain home. Team headquarters is open to staff.

The Giants (3-7) have a bye this weekend. Players were to meet Tuesday and Wednesday and be off the rest of the week.

The Ukraine soccer federation says its Nations League game against Switzerland has been canceled.

The federation says health officials in the Swiss canton state of Lucerne put the squad into quarantine.

Six Ukraine players have tested positive for COVID-19 in Switzerland. UEFA’s disciplinary panel could order Ukraine to forfeit the game.

The French soccer league says Saturday’s game between Marseille and Nice has been postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak in the Nice squad.

The league says at least 10 of the 30 listed players for Nice have tested positive for COVID-19 and will not be available.

No new date has been set for the match.

The Swiss soccer federation says it is waiting for UEFA to decide if its Nations League match will be played after several COVID-19 infections were found in the visiting Ukraine squad.

Ukraine has had six players test positive in Switzerland. But the Ukrainian federation says two of the six should have UEFA clearance to play because Sergei Kryvtsov and Junior Moraes have antibodies after previously testing positive.

Ukraine could be forced to forfeit the game. The match will decide which of the two teams is relegated to the second tier.

The group also includes Germany and Spain.
