Six positive coronavirus tests were performed on Sunday and Monday through three Premier League teams, as the top flight prepares to return in June.

The unidentified players or employees who tested positive must now separate themselves for seven days.

748 players and personnel from 19 clubs have been assessed in total. The rest of the team did their tests on Tuesday and they’ll be included in the results on Saturday.

From Tuesday, squads begin non-contact training.

Since 13 March, the Premier League has been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with there remaining 92 fixtures.

There is an expectation that there might be a need to push back the league which was previously identified to possibly restart on June 12.


It was said in a statement that the Premier League provides this aggregated information for the integrity and transparency of the competition. The league does not have any clear information about clubs or individuals and the findings will be made public in this way after each test round.

Clubs were permitted to check up to 40 workers and some did not make full use of their allowance, although some samples have yet to be processed.

The English top-flight clubs agreed to stage one of the return-to-training protocols at the “Project Restart” meeting on Monday.

As well as practicing in small groups of no more than five, each player will have sessions lasting no longer than 75 minutes. We must stick to mutual distancing.

Official documents sent to players and managers last week, and obtained by the BBC, will be disinfected after each training session, showed corner flags, sticks, cones, goalposts and even playing surfaces.

For further instruction, ongoing steps include twice-weekly monitoring as well as a routine pre-training questionnaire and temperature review.

On Monday, medical advisor to the Premier League, Mark Gillett, said there will be talks in the coming weeks about whether teams will have to stay in a hotel for 14 days before play resumes.
