ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Yankees are dealing with a COVID outbreak on their coaching and support staff, with three confirmed cases.
Third base coach Phil Nevin and first base coach Reggie Willits and an unspecified support staff member tested positive, the team announced Tuesday.
All three cases are considered “breakthrough positives,” since they had been fully vaccinated.
Manager Aaron Boone said there are other staff members and coaches “still pending,’’ and some staff members had been sent home. Nevin was under quarantine in Tampa.

Yankees’ COVID outbreak: Everything we know so far | More positive tests, ‘breakthrough’ cases coming?
There might be more: Pitching coach Matt Blake was absent from Tuesday’s game. Bullpen coach Mike Harkey handled his duties, visiting reliever Jonathan Loaisiga on the mound in the seventh inning. Mario Garza, a player development coordinator with minor-league managing experience, handled first base coach duties while bench coach. Bench coach Carlos Mendoza served as third base coach.
Which vaccine did they get? Staff from Montefiore Medical Center administered the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine to players, staff and coaches at Yankee Stadium on April 7. However, it’s possible the Yankees’ confirmed positives weren’t vaccinated that day and that they received different brand shots.

I am sick and tired of covid. I want my freedom in every day life. If I get covid in my old age, it will probably kill me, but I will not live in a bomb shelter, while life passes me by.
AND what’s the point in calling this, A vaccine, when as this report shows, YOU CAN STILL CATCH IT!
If you get vaccinated, then get exposed to the virus, you may carry it, but it won’t effect you. You become a producer of herd immunity anti-bodies which excelerates the collective cure. That is not a bad thing, unless you belong to the fear mongering Democrat party run Liberal media desperate to steal another election.
Apparently explaining breakthrough cases is a real problem for the CDC. So much so that they beginning in May they have decided to no longer report them unless they result in hospitalization or death.
They had to do something because eventually breakthrough cases would have helped expose the lie that the “vaccines” are 95% effective at preventing people from becoming infected.
For the record the 95% figure includes anyone who was injected and then did not contract Covid. This includes people who were not even exposed and therefore would never have gotten it anyway, which is of course most people since the actual viral attack rate is well under 5% for most populations. For anyone interested, here is how they calculate the 95% rate and what it actually means…
Knowledege of the truth and the desire to seek it remain the only way to be free from from the lies and misinformation perpetrated by this administration and it’s agencies.
I laughed when i heard that one of the main Docs in India, DIED the day AFTER taking the shot “TO try and show all those in India how safe it is” .. OF a blood clot.
