Following Jack Whatmough’s recent positive test for Covid-19, players who came into close contact with the defender were also tested.
These results came back negative. However, two other members of the squad have since complained of feeling unwell and have also tested positive.
The club have, therefore, taken the decision to have the entire playing squad tested over the next 24 hours.
Once the results of these tests are returned, we will be able to liaise with the EFL and our forthcoming opponents.
Portsmouth Football Club urge all supporters to keep following government guidelines and help limit the spread of the virus.
