6 positive tests in premiership clubs over the last couple of days
The bit I found odd about the article I saw about this was there was a comment that the Premier league will not be announcing which players or clubs have been affected. Now I don't know if that meant won't be telling us the public or will be keeping it from other clubs as well.

Fair do's, he has a right not to.
I agree with you he has the right, I just hope clubs and the Premier League are understanding of this and don't bring actions against anyone choosing to do the same.

I think it's strange not announce who tested positive or at least what clubs.

6 players/staff in 3 clubs, not bad in the grand scheme of things

I agree 6 players/staff from the amount that will be working/playing is a low number and should be manageable. I just don't get why they won't say who, considering the transparency needed to stop any further set backs, surely being open about who it was or who in future tests positive will better for helping people to understand it all.

Are they testing the players daily? Just thinking that if this had been after the first round of games there would have been 6 clubs having to isolate for 14 days, the three teams with positive tests and their three opponents (assuming they weren't playing each other). And even if they had picked it up before a match would their team mates have to isolate? Don't know how long it takes after becoming infected to show up as a positive test.

Deeney isn’t retuning time training apparently, because of concerns for his kid’s health
I saw a bit of an interview with him the other day. I don't remember precisely but I think his kid has respiratory issues. Throw in the added worry of the impact it is having on BAME people and how that could affect his kid in combination and i think most will empathise with him for not going back.

I suspect others may emerge over the coming days who have wives, children, parents living with them who are in the vulnerable group and decide it is too early for them to return as well. Not enough, I don't expect, to be a major issue but it is inevitable.

Yeah, not judging, just stating what I’d read.

I thoroughly dislike the man (from what I've read and see on the telle)

However I really hope he isn't punished in anyway by Watford or The FA. He shouldn't be and clearly isn't taking any risks, great parenting.

Edit: missed the team by a few hundred miles

No, this is their return to work test. They‘ll be tested twice a week and the day before a game.

Im not sure what the plans are re isolating if test positive after a game.

Ofcourse but he also has the same right as you do with your employer.

One things for certain, football right now is probably the safest workplace in the country.
Technically yes.

But I'm sure lots of the public would rather not being working but can't make the choice he did.

It's not a slight on him, just saying he's fortunate.

Any employee has a right to refuse to work if they feel it’s unsafe. It’s then upto the employer to prove it’s safe by doing a risk assessment etc

Obviously Footballers and pro sportsmen are on a different plane to us.
