Two more test positive for Covid-19 at EPL clubs
An unnamed Bournemouth player has tested positive for Covid-19, the Premier League club announced Sunday, becoming the eighth case involving an English top-flight club.
Bournemouth added the player’s identity would not be disclosed due to “medical confidentiality” and that he would self-isolate for seven days.
The other positive was at a different club which has not been named.
“Following strict adherence to the Premier League’s return to training regulations, the club’s training ground remains a safe working environment for players and backroom staff, who will continue to be tested for Covid-19 twice per week,” said Bournemouth in a club statement.
The Premier League announced Saturday that there were positive tests at two clubs out of 996 tests conducted on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
