Two MLS teams in Canada will be on separate timetables when it comes to returning from hiatus as Toronto FC was allowed to begin individual player training Monday, while the Montreal Impact remain in wait mode.

The Ontario provincial government enacted an emergency order allowing all professional sports teams to begin workouts at team facilities. The order covers teams from the NHL, MLB, MLS and CFL.

Montreal's regional department of health has elected to not follow Ontario's lead.

A handful of teams have already returned to individual training, including Atlanta United FC, Orlando City SC, Inter Miami, Portland Timbers, Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City.

Individual workouts on outdoor team training fields are voluntary.

Major League Soccer suspended play March 12 after each team had played the first two games of the season schedule. There is no official date for the resumption of the 2020 schedule.
