Full Canada Soccer statement:

Canada Soccer’s priority continues to be the health and safety of the players and staff at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Qualifiers.  In the absence of appropriate COVID-19 test results for the Cayman Islands, Canada Soccer supports the decision by FIFA to reschedule the Cayman Islands v Canada match in Group B on 28 March at 16:00 EDT.  Pending COVID-19 protocols being met, the match will be played on 29 March at 18:00 EDT.

Before each match, teams are required to provide FIFA a negative COVID-19 PCR test result for all players and staff taken no earlier than 72 hours prior to accessing the venue.  No participant is permitted into the match venue without this negative test.  Canada Soccer engaged a laboratory to be on-site with the team to conduct its testing and all Canada Soccer staff and players have received negative testing prior to arriving and while in camp in Florida.
