Portsmouth Football Club can confirm that five members of the playing and backroom staff have tested positive for Covid-19.
This figure includes the three players who took ‘rapid’ tests at the weekend after developing symptoms, which came back positive.
All of those who have tested positive – or come into close contact with those who have – are now self-isolating in accordance with government guidelines.
We wish all those who have been affected by this terrible virus a speedy recovery and our best wishes go out to them.
The club have made the EFL aware of these results and are awaiting confirmation on how this affects Pompey’s forthcoming fixtures.
