But on Monday, the Bernese canton doctor ordered PCR tests for all team members. The reason? The infection is the mutated British variant. Curious: the affected player had only tested positive in January. Also on the mutated variant.
The results arrived on Tuesday. A second player tested positive. Thus, the team has to be quarantined for the fourth time this season. The last four qualifying games against Servette (on Tuesday), the SCRJ Lakers (on Thursday), in Friborg (on Saturday) and in Davos (on Easter Monday) will no longer take place.
Two Biel games canceled
Positive for the Bernese? After 31 games in 61 days, Mario Kogler’s team can take a deep breath and heal the wounds. Because the Bernese can no longer lose, they are already a participant in the pre-playoffs with a point quotient of 1.167.
Meanwhile, at EHC Biel, a third player tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, the games against the SCRJ Lakers (on Wednesday) and Ambri (on Thursday) definitely cannot take place.
