With the remainder of spring training canceled, and the regular season being delayed by at least two weeks due to coronavirus concerns, the Yankees will stay in Tampa.
General manager Brian Cashman said the team was given the option to return home or to their Major League home city, or remain in their spring training city, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
"We have a shot at a World Series title," Britton said. "We want to be prepared to seize that opportunity."
Britton added that the team's workouts will "not [be] crazy organized, but there will be structure to it." He also said the field and clubhouse at George M. Steinbrenner Field has been cleaned consistently.
"Guys aren't panicking about this thing; we understand that it's serious, but the Yankees have a ton of resources in the area. We feel like this is a good place for us to be," said Britton.
According to Hoch, Cashman, manager Aaron Boone, and all Yankees' staff will also stay in Tampa.
After not practicing on Friday, Britton said the Yankees will get back to work on Saturday morning.
