All Colchester United players and staff have once again returned negative COVID-19 tests
Around forty personnel at the U's are now being tested twice a week, and all returned negative results in last week's two tests.
Positive tests are becoming a rarity across the three divisions below the Premier League, with the EFL making the following statement:
The EFL can confirm that a total of 5856 players and Club staff from all seventy two EFL Clubs were tested as part of last week’s testing programme, with two positive cases returned.
A twice-weekly COVID-19 mandatory testing programme is now in place for all seventy two Clubs, with today’s results covering all tests undertaken from Monday 22nd to Sunday 28th February.
Seventy EFL Clubs returned zero positive tests over this period.
Players or Club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate in line with latest Government guidance.
Colchester United wish those who tested positive a speedy recovery, should they have suffered any symptoms, and a swift return to action.
