Further to Tuesday’s round of the PCR COVID-19 screening programme, Wasps can confirm that no further players or staff have tested positive. A test from one of the coaching staff, who tested negative on Saturday, was damaged in transit and that person will be working socially distanced until their result is confirmed.
The team will now return to training in preparation for this Saturday’s Premiership Rugby Final.
Stephen Vaughan, Wasps Group CEO, said: “I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to Premiership Rugby, the RFU, Public Health England and Public Health Warwickshire for their clarity and assistance throughout this whole process. As a Club, we are delighted that we can now take our rightful place in this Saturday’s Premiership Rugby Final. To all of our fans and well-wishers, thank you for your many messages of support, this Final is for you!”
The Club’s COVID-19 contact tracing, measures and protocols, which remain rigorous, will continue to be adhered to.
