The Marlins have ended their one week isolation in Philadelphia and are headed for Baltimore after there were no positive coronavirus tests for the second day in a row among players and staff. There were also no new positives among the Phillies from Saturday’s COVID-19 testing. Both teams haven’t played since squaring off last Sunday in Philadelphia. The Phillies are slated to return Monday at the Yankees, and the Marlins are set to resume Tuesday against the Orioles.

In addition to the Marlins testing negative, Palm Beach County got some good news with no deaths reported Sunday, new cases dipping to a level not seen since July 1 and the percent of positive test results remaining below 10 percent for the fifth day in a row. In fact the entire state of Florida got good news as the number of new cases dipped to a one-month low, the rapid rise in deaths eased and the percent of tests coming back positive fell below 10 percent for the first time in 40 days.
