Sheffield Wednesday all clear in latest round of coronavirus testing
An EFL statement has confirmed that in their latest round of testing for Covid-19, two individuals from two different clubs returned positive results.
The Star understands that Sheffield Wednesday players and staff were given the all clear in the testing process, which took place from Wednesday to Saturday this week.
One member of Wednesday staff, who was asymptomatic and has not been named, tested positive earlier in the week and continues to self-isolate in line with EFL and Government guidelines.
One of the positive tests was taken from a staff member at the Owls’ South Yorkshire colleagues at Barnsley FC, the Tykes have confirmed this evening.
The EFL statement said: “Those players or Club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the EFL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities.”
