Nationals Park Worker Tests Positive for COVID-19

A concession worker at Nationals Park has tested positive for the coronavirus, a team spokesman said Monday.

The employee for the stadium’s concessionaire, Levy, last worked at the stadium Wednesday, two days before the positive test, the spokesman said, WTOP reported.

“Both the D.C. Department of Health and Levy determined that no additional employees or fans were considered to be at risk,” the spokesman said.

The Washington Nationals organization said it has “stringent protocols in place to keep both of our employees and fans safe,” WTOP reported.

The protocols include:

  • Requiring daily health screenings and temperature checks for every worker at the ballpark.
  • Giving out KN95 masks to all ballpark employees.
  • Adding partitions at concession stands to limit potential virus spread among fans and workers. Those reconfigured concession stands meet accepted social distance requirements and are sanitized each night.

Additionally, the team said it strongly encourages employees to get vaccinated and provides information on registering for the procedure.

Manager Davey Martinez said that “most” of the team was vaccinated Monday. The Nationals twice had to delay Opening Day earlier this month after a coronavirus outbreak among the team.
