Team DSM and Jumbo-Visma have withdrawn from the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana before the start of stage 4 after members of the teams tested positive for COVID-19. The teams did not specify if the two cases involved riders or staff. 

On Friday, the BikeExchange-Jayco team withdrew from the Spanish stage race after two members of the squad tested positive for COVID-19. Movistar also announced that two of their riders – Juri Hollmann and Einer Rubio – had left the race after positive tests, but the other riders continued in the race.
