Americans Donavan Brazier and Raevyn Rogers are both late scratches from the American Track League Meeting #2 at Randal Tyson Track Center here in Fayetteville, Ark. because of COVID-19 protocols.
ESPN reported on Sunday that an unnamed athlete tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of the meeting.
Although Rogers and Brazier both tested negative for the virus, the pair have been held out and are in quarantine due to contact tracing for close contacts.
Rogers was slated to open her season in the women’s 600m against three other athletes.
Brazier, who owns the world indoor 600m record at 1:13.77, was down to race in that event on Sunday.
