Via the Washington Post 7/17/2020: Del Mar Racetrack in California canceled this weekend’s horse racing after 15 jockeys and seven other track workers tested positive Tuesday for covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, all but one of the people who tested positive spent the July 4 weekend working at Los Alamitos Race Course in Orange County, Calif. The summer racing meet at Del Mar, located north of San Diego, began July 10 without fans in attendance and will resume July 24.

“The good news is that all our jockeys and personnel who tested positive are showing no symptoms,” Del Mar chief operating officer Josh Rubinstein said. “If they are asymptomatic, they will be eligible to ride after 10 days.”
