A jockey based at Woodbine Racetrack on the outskirts of Toronto has tested positive for COVID-19.

Woodbine Entertainment made the announcement Thursday but didn’t identify the jockey.

The track's COVID-19 prevention protocols do not allow access to Woodbine for at least 14 days while self-quarantining. The jockey will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before being allowed to resume racing.

The organization said contact tracing has been performed and individuals who were in close contact with the jockey are being notified. Those individuals, including at least one other rider, will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to being permitted to enter the facility.

Woodbine Entertainment said the case of COVID-19 was contracted outside the racetrack. The organization added that the jockey room and other common areas received thorough electrostatic disinfection Saturday, which is the last day the facility hosted live racing.
