EPL: six positive coronavirus tests across three clubs

Over football news, the Premier League has said that 6 people from 3 different clubs had tested positive for COVID-19.

The league said in a statement on Tuesday, that the infected players or staff who were not named, will now self-isolate for 7 days.

The tests were taken on Sunday and Monday, ahead of the return to small group training. On Monday, the Premier League voted to allow clubs to begin small group, non-contact training.

A maximum of 5 players will be allowed per pitch, with tackling forbidden for now. As you know, the Premier League has been suspended since March 13th because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The league had previously set June the 12th as a tentative date for a restart of action, but there is now an expectation this will need to be pushed back.
