TOUR DE FRANCE IMPOSES RULES TO STOP COVID-19 SPREAD
French authorities have made it harder for Tour de France teams to reach the Paris finish line if a member tests positive.
According to AP News Agency, officials decided teams will be expelled from the race if two or more of their staff members test positive for the coronavirus within a week.
The move was announced just a few hours before the start of the three-week race’s opening stage in Nice.
It overruled a decision from cycling’s governing body that had eased the Tour’s exclusion rules on Friday.
There are 30 members per team, which includes staff.
