CALGARY – The Western Hockey League has cleared the Spokane Chiefs to resume team activities after two people in the organization tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

The Chiefs skated Monday after all personnel and players on the active roster tested negative, the WHL said.

Team activities were suspended after the discovery of two positive tests Nov. 10.

Spokane is at home to the Seattle Thunderbirds on Friday.
