    What isn't?

    On the plus side the member of staff will now be self isolating and not passing the virus on.

    They have all been tested three times already. Safest place for anyone is the training ground at the moment plus any positive cases without symptoms now know to isolate.

    you cannot play a contact sport and stay 2M away

    sure that person is self isolating, but when they resume full on training, say he had it then

    Have they laid out rules if say half the playing squad tested positive therefore were ruled out of games.

    Are you able to postpone or is it just treated as a usual injured player?

    I'd have thought that they'd have been in contact with other staff members (possibly players) and, under track and trace, they'd also have to self-isolate?

    It's a statement of the blindingly obvious.

    What do you reckon - should football resume or not?

    If not, when? And under what circumstances?

    my original post was fairly simple to understand, yet it appeared to the person i replied to it wasnt, so while it might have been blindingly obvious to you ( and i guess most others ), it might have not been to the other person

    Whether I think football should resume or not is neither here nor there tbh.

    It really wasn't very clear at all.

    "You cannot play a contact sport and stay 2m away". That much is true, but what is your point with regards to the impact of one staff member testing positive?

    "sure that person is self isolating, but when they resume full on training, say he had it then"

    He will be self-isolating for 7 days, longer if he displays symptoms. He won't have it when they resume "full on" training.

    Well weíre on a football message board and I was interested in your opinion, but I guess it was too much to ask.

    Is it not quite likely that someone else has caught it from this person and wonít test positive yet risking spreading it to others?

    Or are they thinking they caught this before there was any interaction ? Or there havenít been situations where people were likely to get it?

    Surely thereís a chance of this a whole team getting it or spreading it during a match at some point?

    My assumption would be that anyone he has been in contact will have to self-isolate for 14 days, as per the rules.

    The message here is that he is a "member" of staff - which suggests a non-playing member, which may mean there is no need for the team to isolate. Or, like you say, with social distancing in place, isolation is not necessary.

    Re: Member of CCFC staff tests positive in latest round of tests

    Havenít there been cases of players testing positive too? Whatís the protocol with that?

    I hope it all works out but thereís a chance everything could end up postponed again.

    Training is taking place with social distancing. Also, all players are being tested so, maybe, a negative test result implies that isolation isn't necessary (i.e. Player B of Reading is positive, all other players tested negative in the same day - therefore isolation not necessary)? However, I think it is still the case that it is unknown when tests show as positive during the infection timeline.

    didnít realise they were training like that. Be interesting if someone tests positive after a match which I assume wonít be socially distanced

    I saw a video somewhere of Spurs training. Found it, here is the link.

    That is interesting, just reading though that full contact training starts this week.

    I was wondering if it would start at any stage.
