A player from the Norwich City team has tested positive for CoVID-19.
In light of such an event, Tottenham who played Norwich in a friendly recently has now issued a statement.
It said: “We continue to operate within the strict guidelines outlined by the Premier League to ensure we avoid any risk of infection spreading should anyone else test positive, including practicing social distancing so no ‘close contacts’ are created, which has been defined by the government as being within two meters of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more.”
The statement was in response to one made by Norwich earlier publicly announcing about their player’s (unnamed) situation.
“Norwich City can confirm that one of its players has returned a positive test result following the recent round of Covid-19 testing,” the statement on their website said.
“In line with the Premier League’s protocols, the player will now self-isolate for a period of seven days before being tested again at a later date.
“The player must return a negative test result before being able to resume training.”
It now remains to be seen what kind of actions are going to take place due to the constant clashing and mixing of teams due to football amidst CoVID-19.
