MAN CITY Players And Staff Test Positive For Covid-19 and will self-isolate
In a statement by the club today (Friday), it says, “Manchester City FC can confirm that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker, and two members of staff have tested positive for COVID-19. Everyone at the Club wishes our colleagues a speedy recovery over the Christmas period ahead of their return to work, training, and competition. All four personnel will now observe a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine”.
Premier League regulations require anybody with coronavirus symptoms to self-isolate for 10 days, which means City will be without two of their key players going into the match at Newcastle on Boxing Day, plus the Everton game on December 28, and the match with Chelsea on January 3.
Fears over the spread of the virus within football are growing following the emergence of the new variant of Covid-19, with players and staff in Tier 4 areas to now be tested twice weekly, as they were during Project Restart last season.
