Those players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the USL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities. Anyone identified via contact tracing will also be quarantined and tested.

The USL added that 720 tests were administered to 385 players and club staff from the 12 League One clubs from June 30-July 13 with eight individuals testing positive from five organizations.

Those players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the USL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities. Anyone identified via contact tracing will also be quarantined and tested.

As the 2020 season continues, the USL and USL Players Association will make a central announcement of COVID-19 test results on a weekly basis to continue to support competition integrity and transparency.

To protect the privacy of those involved, no specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the USL or the USLPA.

At minimum, players, and staff members who are in close contact with players, will be given a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) diagnostic test for COVID-19 every week.

Players and staff members who work with players will be quarantined and given additional PCR tests if they are symptomatic or if they have been in close contact for a prolonged period with a diagnosed or suspected case of COVID-19.
