Billye Aaron has now tested negative twice for COVID-19 since she was exposed to Yankees star Aaron Judge at the All-Star Game last week.

Ms. Aaron, the widow of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, underwent a rapid test last Friday. That was negative, but she planned to have a follow-up on Monday as a precaution. It can take several days after exposure for the virus to register, so the initial test did not necessarily clear her.

Fortunately, the second test also came back negative, a source close to the Aaron family told SNY.

Before Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Denver, Judge stood next to Ms. Aaron for several minutes during a tribute to her husband, who died in January at age 86. At one point, he patted her on the shoulder.

Two days later, the Yankees placed Judge on the COVID-19 injured list.

Manager Aaron Boone said on Friday that Judge could rejoin the team next week in Tampa Bay.
