Forest Green Rovers can confirm one first-team player has returned a positive test for COVID-19.
As a result of the positive case, three further first team players will also enter a period of self-isolation due to their close contact with the player.
The player reported coronavirus symptoms – and subsequently tested positive. However, the players who had close contact tested negative and will adhere to protocols by self-isolating for a 14-day period. To protect medical records, the players will remain anonymous.
FGR and the EFL have been in dialogue following the positive test - and the Club remain committed to the safety and welfare of our players.
Today’s match with Stevenage will go ahead as normal.
