Update from Wasps concerning COVID-19 testing

Date: 19 Oct 2020

Following an additional round of COVID-19 testing on Saturday, Wasps can confirm that four more members of the playing department have tested positive. 

Those concerned are now self-isolating, as are their close contacts.

After consultation with the medical leads at Premiership Rugby, the RFU and Public Health England, the Club will continue not to train at this stage. A decision on whether the Club will play in Saturday’s Premiership Rugby Final will be made following the results of a further set of testing to be undertaken on Tuesday.

The Club’s COVID-19 contact tracing, measures and protocols, which remain rigorous, will continue to be adhered to.

Exeter Chiefs and Bristol Bears have been made aware of the situation prior to the public release of this information.
