One Watford player and two members of staff have tested positive for Covid-19 the club has revealed. After the Premier League’s first round of testing, which will now take place twice a week, it was announced yesterday that six people from three different clubs had tested positive for the virus. A statement released last night by Watford confirmed three of those six cases were people from the club.
The statement reads: “Watford Football Club confirms that three people have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus following testing at the training ground over the past 48 hours. Of those three positive tests, one is a player and two are members of staff. All three have asked that medical confidentiality be respected and, therefore, the club will not be naming those involved. All three will now self-isolate for seven days – in line with the protocols set out in Premier League guidelines – before being tested again at a later date. Strict adherence to the Premier League guidelines has ensured the training ground remains virus-free and a safe environment for the players to continue to work. The club will continue to liaise closely with the affected personnel and there will be no further comment.”
