The Premier League has confirmed on Tuesday there were six positives from three clubs for coronavirus after tests were carried out on 748 players and staff.
On Monday 18 May, the Premier League announced that clubs would be allowed to restart training in small groups within the next 24 hours with no date set for league fixtures to restart.
Watford, an English professional football club, announced late Tuesday that three people, including one player, had tested positive for the virus and all three would self-isolate for seven days in line with league guidelines.
Burnley, an English professional association football club based in Burnley, also confirmed in a statement earlier that day that assistant manager Ian Woan had tested positive.
Each Premier League club has submitted 40 staff — players, coaches, medical staff — for testing prior to the start of group training.
As part of the Premier League’s strict protocol, no player can train without being tested and any players or staff who test positive must quarantine themselves for a period of seven days. Testing will be conducted at each club twice a week.
Premier League clubs remain unable to agree on a date to resume their season because of a range of disagreements including venues for games, safety issues and the prospect of relegation being decided by average points per game if a return date cannot be finalised by a 14-6 majority of the 20 clubs.
But with hopes of games being played again from mid-June, the Premier League has now confirmed training in small groups will be allowed from the afternoon of May 19.
