|Coronavirus (Covid-19) update We have provided an update on the handling of positive Covid-19 cases by clubs and of current local lockdown restrictions.
Handling positive Covid-19 cases
We are currently liaising with Public Health England (PHE) to seek additional clarity on the process and requirements for a club to follow in the event of a positive Covid-19 case within their club.
In the case where a positive test is a player, providing all rugby activities that the player participated in were within RFU Return to Community Rugby and Stage D guidelines, then there is no requirement for other players to self-isolate.
For any non-playing positive cases, e.g. spectators, the general Government guidance must be followed – see link below.
Further information will be published in due course. In the meantime, following a positive test, a representative from the club should contact the local PHE centre to inform them of the development and seek further advice. Clubs should also ensure that they have an appropriate risk assessment in place and are operating within Government and RFU guidelines for all facility usage and rugby activity.
