Vancouver Canucks forward Tyler Motte entered his team’s quarantine in Vancouver on Thursday and shared his experiences from his first day of life inside “the bubble” with a short video post to his Twitter account last night.
The 25-year-old from Michigan began his day with a short flight from Seattle to Vancouver. Once arriving in Vancouver he checked into the Canucks hotel in time for quarantined room service, which was pre-packaged and left at the door of his room.
Following lunch Motte headed down to the team’s designated COVID-19 testing station for his first of what will likely be many, many tests for the COVID-19 virus.

After the eye-watering test, Motte concluded his day with video games and a Zoom call with his family.
At first glance, life inside the bubble doesn’t seem too taxing, however, one can see how this day-to-day life might get old in short order.
All playoff teams, including the Capitals, will begin to quarantine in the next few days, as training camps officially open on Monday. The Capitals will travel to Toronto on July 24, where they will officially enter their “bubble” at the X Hotel.
