The Giants and Padres are set to play a doubleheader on Sunday after MLB determined a positive COVID-19 test was inaccurate.

Giants outfielder Alex Dickerson received a false positive COVID-19 test result earlier this week, the league announced Sunday.  Dickerson's test result resulted in both Friday and Saturday games being  postponed.

The league shared in a statement on Sunday that, “The committee has determined that the presumptive positive did not represent an actual infection or present a risk to other personnel."

The teams are still expected to play an additional make-up game later in the season, though, a date has not yet been released.
