Knicks shut down facility after employees contract COVID-19

The Knicks shut down their practice facility in Tarrytown after three employees tested positive for the coronavirus during a routine screening, the team said in a statement Tuesday night.

The unidentified employees were described as asymptomatic and are under quarantine.

The facility, which was used for voluntary workouts, is set to undergo a “thorough cleaning” before being reopened at a later date.

The Knicks haven’t played since March, when the league halted the regular season due to the pandemic.

They did not qualify for the completion of the regular season and postseason that took place over the summer in a bubble-like atmosphere near Orlando, Fla.

The 2020-21 NBA season is set to begin Dec. 22.
