DETROIT — In less that two weeks, theThey will travel to Toronto to face the Blue Jays. This will be their first trip to Canada since the outbreak of coronavirus.
Canadian law requires that all members of any club traveling with them must be fully immunized against COVID-19 at the minimum 14 days before they are allowed to enter Canada.
The Yankees had a few players that had not vaccinated when spring training began. Their availability was a concern as the team was due to travel to Toronto on Sunday May 1 for a three-game series against Blue Jays.
Aaron Boone, the Yankees manager, stated that he didn't believe that it would be an issue. He also implied that he has a fully vaccinated roster in his remarks ahead of Tuesday's Yankees game against the Red Sox.Comerica park
“I believe that we're going in a good place, that's how I see it. Boone answered the question of whether he expected to have everyone he wanted on the Rogers Centre's active roster.
Boone declined to discuss specifics when Boone was asked about the changes in his life since the spring.
“I don’t know what the timelines are for everything,” he admitted. “I just… I understand that everything will be okay.”
Boone addressed the issue of spring unvaccinated players and said that he was willing to speak with anyone who is unvaccinated if necessary.
Boone, who was speaking in Tampa on March 14, stated that “if it becomes an issue, then I would have conversations to men.” “I'm blessed with people who have made the right choices in their lives. It is one of those things that has unfortunately polarized us as individuals and nations. While I will communicate with the guys, in the end it is a personal decision.
