TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR moved quickly to ease alarm after an unnamed Norwich City player tested positive for COVID-19 following a warm-up match between the two sides staged at the North Londoners home.
The Canaries confirmed that one of their party was flagged after the latest round of testing, shortly after their 2-1 victory in N17.
A statement released by the Lilywhites explained;
We continue to operate within the strict guidelines outlined by the PL to ensure we avoid any risk of infection spreading should anyone else test positive, including practising social distancing so no ‘close contacts’ are created, which has been defined by government as being within 2m of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more.
This means that no other member of the squad or staff should be forced to self-isolate other than the person who returns a positive test result and their household members.
The Norwich player in question has confirmed he had no ‘close contacts’ with our team yesterday and our squad has also verified this. Our testing has continued to return only negative results for COVID since one positive reading was confirmed almost two weeks ago.
Spurs return to Premier League action on Friday evening when Manchester United are the visitors to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (8:15pm).
