Worcester Warriors confirm two members of staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

Recommended Posts

The club confirmed the news in a statement explaining that both are asymptomatic but, as part of the procedures introduced by Premiership Rugby as part of Stage Two of the Return to Training Protocols, they will be re-tested. 

Both are currently self-isolating at home.

Stage Two of the Return to Training Protocols require clubs to provide a written declaration to Premiership Rugby that they have met a number of key criteria alongside a full risk assessment informing the operational policy for their training facility. These include:

  • All players and support staff must undertake an Education Module and sign a formal “opt in” process for moving to Stage 2.
  • All players and designated support staff undergoing weekly COVID-19 testing, and maintaining the high standards of hygiene introduced at training facilities.
  • All clubs in conjunction with Premiership Rugby and the Rugby Football Union undertaking a rugby risk assessment to support the mitigation of risk in training.
  • The continuation of a daily medical screening for players and support staff, which involves the completion of a symptom checklist and temperature check before entering the training facility.
  • A contact tracing protocol which will be supported by GPS data and the videoing of training sessions.
  • The provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) appropriate for the setting.
