Slavia resume training following COVID-19 scare
Slavia footballers have been cleared to return to training beginning today. The Prague club announced on its website that all today’s tests for coronavirus were negative.
Due to a positive test with one of the players, the team prematurely ended their training camp in Austria on Tuesday and returned to the Czech Republic, where all members of the team were in isolation.
“61 negative tests. Slavia can train in the evening,” Slavia boss Jaroslav Tvrdík wrote on twitter. According to him, the initially-infected football player was not tested today, he remained in quarantine and will take the test next week on Tuesday.
Defenders of the title are to start a new league season on Sunday, 23 August, at the České Budějovice field, but it is not clear whether they will meet this deadline.
According to the standard 14-day quarantine, Slavia players should be out of the game by Monday, 24 August.
The director of the Prague hygiene station, Zdeňka Jágrová, previously stated that the measures that Slavia will have to take would be adjusted according to the number of others infected on the Vršovice team.
