This strikes home, not close to home, for the Cats

NHL: Preseason-Tampa Bay Lightning at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Florida Panthers have been informed by the Florida Department of Health that a part-time BB&T Center employee tested positive for the COVID-19 virus on March 15. This employee last worked at the arena on March 8. The employee is self-quarantining and receiving medical care.

The March 8 date is one day after the Cats finished a five-game homestand that ran from February 27 to March 7 and included games against Toronto, Chicago, Calgary, Boston and Montreal.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery from everyone in the Litter Box Cats family to this person. Get Well!
