Tottenham Hotspur has released a statement revealing that preparations for Friday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United will continue despite their meeting with the Norwich City player who was tested positive for coronavirus.
Spurs lost out to 2-1 to the Canaries in a behind-closed-doors friendly match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
A player from the visiting team was unfortunately confirmed as one of the two who was tested positive for COVID-19 when the result for the test was released on Saturday.
The player was directed to isolate for the next seven days, this has lead others to speculate that Spurs players would also have to isolate under the track and trace guidelines.
However, Spurs said that was not the case, as their squad was in touch with the Norwich player.
Tottenham said, “Close contacts have been defined by the government as being within two meters of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more,”
“The Norwich player in question confirmed he had no ‘close contacts’ with our team and our squad also verified this.
“Our testing has continued to return only negative results for Covid-19 since one positive reading was confirming almost two weeks ago.”
