Two Clare hurlers self-isolating despite negative Covid test

DESPITE returning negative Covid tests, two Clare hurlers will continue to self-isolate and step back from training.
In a statement, Clare GAA confirmed it had asked the two players who were deemed close contacts last week after the Wexford game to “step back from training and game activity once they were named”.
The players, as a consequence, had to isolate for the intervening 10 days from notification.
“Following voluntary testing of the two nominated Clare players they were deemed to be negative but will still be isolating,” the statement said.
“At all times Clare GAA teams adhere to the guidelines laid down by the HSE and the governing body of our sport. Clare GAA will take on board at all times the advice and support provided by the health authorities.
“Clare GAA will endeavour to ensure the strictest management of health and safety during Covid and non-Covid times for all Clare GAA teams and request that the clubs of the county do likewise as we now move into the playing season at levels.”
“Clare GAA would like to wish the Wexford players a speedy recovery.”
