Megan Walker Tests Positive for COVID-19
New York Liberty rookie forward Megan Walker tested positive for the COVID-19 virus prior to the team traveling to Florida. She is in self-isolation under the care of team physicians, did not travel with the team to IMG Academy, and is unable to join the team for the start of training camp.
Although she is asymptomatic, she strongly encourages everyone to wear a mask in public and practice social distancing to help prevent the spread of the virus.
The Liberty are in frequent communication with Megan and are optimistic that she will eventually join the team at IMG Academy and compete in the 2020 WNBA season when it is safe for her to do so. The safety and health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that Megan receives the best care possible.
