In accordance with U.S. Ski & Snowboard and FIS COVID-19 protocols, Mack and Farrell have been tested multiple times per week since arriving in Europe. All of their tests had produced negative results through the Kreischberg, Austria World Cup. Fortunately, Mack and Farrell are asymptomatic and have been self-isolating since the positive test. 

Ongoing testing of U.S. Snowboard Team athletes who traveled and shared accommodation with Mack and Farrell has resulted in no other positive cases. However, in accordance with FIS and Austrian COVID-19 policies and protocols, these athletes are unable to compete in the 2021 Laax Open and will be under mandatory quarantine in Austria.

The health and safety of all U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes and staff remain our highest priority. We wish all athletes safe travel back to the U.S. upon completing mandatory quarantine periods.
