Only the teams with several cases of Covid in the Southern Conference will stay in the original Vicente López hotel. The rest, to other accommodations or to their homes.
After the outbreak of Covid-19 cases that occurred among the National League campuses in the “bubble” of the Southern Conference, the vast majority of the delegations left the hotel where all the teams were located to go to other accommodations or even to their homes. Only those with several infections remained in the original establishment.
The Gimnasia de Comodoro Rivadavia campuses, which reported nine cases (eight players and one prop), Argentino de Junín, with eight confirmed, and Bahía Basket, of which there are no official confirmations but which has between one and two cases and multiple suspects, they stayed at the Ramada de Vicente López hotel, on San Martín avenue almost Del Libertador.
As reported by the Básquet Plus site, the Boca, Peñarol de Mar del Plata and Hispano Americano campuses moved to the Regente Palace hotel, located in the Retiro area. While San Lorenzo moved to the Scala hotel, on the way to the San Telmo neighborhood and near the Howard Johnson Plaza where the teams from the North conference are housed.
Ferro had not yet determined where to move, while Obras and Platense, due to the proximity to the Rock Temple, which hosts League matches, allowed their players to return to their homes. As for the Obras players, several of the young people will stay in the club’s facilities, while others will stay in apartments in front of the stadium.
In the case of Vicente López’s, in addition, several of its members had already suffered from the disease, which technically would reduce the risk of recontagion.
This Sunday’s games were all postponed and this Monday morning all the members of the delegations of the South “bubble” will be swapped. Those from the North, meanwhile, will be examined in the afternoon.
Only when the Crisis Committee made up of the Club Association and the Argentine Basketball Confederation – in which representatives of the Players Association and, as advisor, the former National Team doctor Diego Grippo also participate – have the definitive results of all the studies, a determination will be made as to how to proceed.
