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.

Players still aren't able to skate during this period. The NHL has said that they would eventually like to be able to allow small groups to begin skating on their own at team facilities before any organized camps begin.

The NHL has had just two players test positive for coronavirus so far, both players are Ottawa Senators.
