NHL general managers had a conference call with league officials on Tuesday to discuss possible courses of action as the season remains on pause due to the coronavirus outbreak.

On the call, the league informed general managers that they were extending the self-quarantine period for team personnel another 10 days, Sportsnet reports. Teams were initially instructed to have personnel remain in isolation until Friday, so players and staff now are being asked to remain in self-quarantine until April 6.

Players who have long-term injuries requiring rehab with the team’s medical staff are still permitted to receive their treatment during this period.
