Covid-19 tests conducted on Friday ahead of the Austrian Bundesliga match against SK Rapid Vienna were negative for all FC Red Bull Salzburg players. Another test for all international players, which the club was informed about on Sunday evening, had quite different results, however. There were six positive results from this group of players.
TEAM quarantIne AND NO INTERNATIONAL DUTY
According to the Covid-19 prevention concept, the Austrian Bundesliga, Austrian football association and the relevant health authorities have been informed. The players, who are all currently without symptoms, have gone straight into self-isolation. The rest of our squad have begun a team quarantine according to the prevention concept. This means that they can only travel between their house, the training ground and match locations.
All international call-ups for FC Red Bull Salzburg players have also been rejected for now.
third set of tests today
In order to investigate the differences in the test results within such a short period of time and gain as much clarity as possible about the level of infection of the players, the entire squad will take another series of PCR tests today. That could potentially result in changes to the procedures to follow, which are set by the authorities.
