These are definitely strange times with Covid and we're all excited about getting back to playing the beautiful game... but if you are feeling sick or got a Covid test and awaiting results then stay the fcuk at home.

A game was played over the weekend between team A and team B. Team A had a player test positive for Covid on Sunday or Monday morning. Team B got the news about it on Monday afternoon. That means the player got his Covid Test and violated regulations by not self isolating until he got his test back. What a piece of shite.

A public health official would have already been directly in contact with the manager of both teams with guidance that would likely be no more than to notify everyone present for the match to as @machel says "monitor for symptoms"

They would have also done an extensive interview with the person who tested positive and identified any "close contacts" -- anyone they drove with to/from the match, anyone they sat next to on the team bench for an extended period, etc -- and then followed up directly with those people with more specific instructions regading quarantine/testing.

I am 99.7 percent sure that both teams players and families will be fine with no short or long term health issues. Stats are facts.

You notify those in contact. Those in contact get tested, self isolate until test results. If negative, move along. If positive, that person then needs to do the contact tracing thing with authorities, w/ exception of previously mentioned teammates whom have tested as they have already been contacted and presumably getting tested. .

This is Public Health official guidelines. Been there, done that, had one daughter get tested (negative), and those were the guidelines communicated to us.

Not for any league to set guidelines, only to follow public health. And yes, Machel, sounds like said player is an ass. Whatever you think of this desease, just his act alone creates so much handwringing and actions that could have otherwise been avoided if he'd just not played that day.
