Club Statement: Covid-19

Wigan Warriors can confirm that there have been three positive Covid-19 results in the Club’s latest round of testing. 

Testing took place on Monday 12th October and three members of staff have received positive tests. 

The first case is from a member of the first team coaching staff. 

The second and third are from members of support staff. 

All three are now self-isolating as per Government guidelines.  

As a result, and as confirmed earlier, Wigan’s scheduled Betfred Super League game against Catalans Dragons on Thursday 15th October has been postponed. 

As yet, there is no new date available in the calendar for the Wigan-Catalans fixture – but the situation will be kept under review. 

There will be a further round of testing at the Club on Thursday. Following those results, the RFL’s Multiple Cases Group will consider whether the Wigan first team squad can return to training. 

A further update will follow in the coming days.

The Club can also confirm that one of the three players who tested positive for Covid-19 last week has since returned two negative tests this week and is now awaiting sign off to return to training. 

The other two players are continuing to self-isolate as per Government guidelines. 

Wigan’s next scheduled fixture is against Salford Red Devils on Friday 23rd October.
