Wigan Warriors have today closed their Robin Park Arena training ground for a ten-day period following a number of positive Covid-19 tests.
Following Monday morning’s round of testing, the Club acted swiftly to ensure the safety of all players, staff and their families.
The decision has been taken to help remove the trace of the virus and eradicate it from the first team group.
Those who tested positive are now self-isolating at home for a minimum of ten days, along with any other individuals who have been identified as a close contact, as per Government guidelines.
There will be further rounds of testing at the Club on 12th and 17th February. Following those results, the RFL’s Multiple Cases Group will consider whether the first team squad can return to training.
In line with Government guidelines, Public Health England have been informed.
