In his latest 32 Thoughts column for Sportsnet, Elliotte Friedman reports on the Chinese government's "isolation facilities" set up for NHL players who test positive.

Check it out:
According to the Athletes' Playbook, released this week, «If you have a confirmed positive test: You will not be allowed to compete/continue your role. If you are symptomatic, you will be asked to stay at the designated hospital for treatment. If you are asymptomatic, you will be asked to stay in an isolation facility.» At a hospital, you will be discharged when: «Your body temperature returns to normal for three consecutive days; respiratory symptoms improve significantly; lung imaging shows significant improvement; you have two consecutive negative PCR test results with a sample interval of at least 24 hours; and you display no other COVID-19 symptoms.» At an isolation facility: «You will be tested every day, beginning 24 hours after your last test. You will be discharged once you have two consecutive negative PCR test results with at least 24 hours between the two samples and no other COVID-19 symptoms.»
- Elliotte Friedman
Pietrangelo: «I've got four kids that are under the age of 3 1/2. For me to be potentially locked up there for five weeks plus the Olympics, that's a long time being away from my family.»
Honestly i don't blame the players for not wanting to go to the Olympics.
