Tennys Sandgren is on his way to Melbourne despite test positive for COVID-19 on Monday! The American star revealed that he tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday after a first positive over Thanksgiving.

But the 29-year-old was allowed to board the on of the Australian Open Los Angeles-Melbourne charter flights last night at LAX. And to a degree, even he was surprised.

So how can a player who tested positive get on an Australian Open charter flight to Melbourne? According to the tournament, Sandgren was allowed to board because he tested positive back in November and therefore could still test positive for months thereafter without fear of being contagious.

Following Sandgren’s tweets, the Australian Open released a statement confirming his permission to board the plane.

Sandgren will be arriving shortly in Melbourne where he will still have to quarantine for two weeks.
