The German Bundesliga has enjoyed success since the league resumed last month, and the Premier League is also set to resume football this month.

The UK government has given the Premier League permission to resume on June 17, but there’ll have to be certain safety measures in place that will ensure the safety of everyone involved.

After three initial tests conducted on players and staff, a total of 12 were reported to have tested positive to Covid-19. But thankfully, after the fourth round of testing, there were no cases of the virus.

Sky Sports have now confirmed that any player who will test positive for the Covid-19 this week risks missing the first game after the Premier League season resumes on June 17.

The season restarts in just two weeks’ time which means that if someone tests positive during the two sessions scheduled for this week will not be back in time for the game.

As per the safety guidelines, a player who is found to have contracted the virus will not be allowed to the training ground or any other club facility for the following 14 days, a period that includes seven days of self-isolation.
