US Snowboarders Test Positive For COVID

by The Editors on January 19, 2021

The Snowboard World Cup took a hit this week as Kyle Mack and Lyon Farrell both tested positive for COVID-19 prior to this week’s Laax Open in Switzerland and will not be able to compete.

Mack and Farrell are asymptomatic, according to U.S. Ski and Snowboard on Monday. . . Other unnamed U.S. snowboarders who traveled and shared accommodation with Mack and Farrell, though they have not tested positive, are also out of the competition due to coronavirus policies and protocols.

Hopefully they stay asymptomatic. Shaun White had already pulled out of Laax for non-COVID reasons and Chloe Kim was “not impacted” and will compete for the first time since March 2019.
