Vancouver Whitecaps players are permitted to return to individual workouts at club facilities as of Tuesday.

The plan for a return has been approved by provincial health authorities in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and any workout will be voluntary.

"We are pleased to move forward with the first phase of return to play in a safe and responsible manner," Whitecaps sporting director Axel Schuster said in a statement. "We have worked very closely with all the health authorities, and impacted groups, to prepare a strategic and coordinated plan for players and staff to use the training fields."
