Teams, meanwhile, can return to practices beginning Sunday, November 1.

Part of these new measures, according to Marcial, is the setting up of a temporary quarantine facility within Clark Freeport.
The league will be shelving a total of nine games before accommodating a new schedule, not counting the first three matches that were called off due to two false positive cases.
