A player and two staff of English Premier League team, Watford FC, have tested positive for coronavirus.

The club made the announcement in a statement.

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.

“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,” the Club says in a statement on its Twitter handle and website.

Already, the Premier League yesterday confirmed six cases of coronavirus within three clubs after the first phase of its mass testings that saw over 748 persons being tested for the virus.

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.
