Jayson Stark of The Athletic was among those to report four more positive tests:

The Phillies have not commented on the severity of the virus in any affected.

Meanwhile Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association were unable to agree on any plan to play.  MLB has asked players to let them know by 5:00 p.m. today if they are able to report to a July 1 start to Spring Training.  That may not be guaranteed as player COVID-19 cases mount and players worry about safety.
