Huddersfield Giants have closed their training facility for a minimum of five days following a number of positive Covid-19 tests over the last few days.
The decision was made in conjunction with the RFL to ensure the safety of all players and staff, and has been taken as a precaution to halt spread of infection within the playing group.
While players and staff are off-site, the Giants Training Centre will undergo a full deep clean and Public Health England have been informed, as per the government guidance via the RFL.
Managing Director Richard Thewlis said “We have followed the guidelines laid down precisely and quickly which meant that following this mornings lateral flow testing a threshold was hit whereby we immediately closed our facility and will take a five day break again as per the guidelines.
“In that time the training centre will undergo a full deep clean and in order for a return to training to be sanctioned further testing will take place for all staff and players next week.”
