ECMWA2021 – Further Update on Coronavirus 07.12.2021sara.smareglia
ECMWA, Madrid, Spain
On 7th December, during routine antigen testing by their own protocols, that are additional to championship regular testing, a member of the Great Britain Women’s Team staff tested positive for Covid. This result was later confirmed by a PCR test. We wish them well as they quarantine in their hotel room according to the covid protocol.
All other persons in the delegation of Great Britain tested negative in antigen tests on the same day.
In accordance with the covid protocol, all persons who have tested negative are able to continue in the competition. However, to provide reassurance to all, Great Britain have voluntarily taken the decision that players and staff of the Women’s team will remain in their rooms unless travelling to training, games or the regular antigen testing. IWBF Europe supports this approach by the team and will assist to ensure the care and welfare of all players is met.
Great Britain Men operate in a separate bubble to the Women and are not affected by the situation.
