Manchester City have confirmed that following further Covid-19 testing yesterday, results have so far revealed no new positive cases.
Following a ‘significant number‘ of positive cases recorded at the club during Covid-19 testing on Monday ahead of the club’s trip to Everton in the Premier League, Manchester City were forced to postpone their game and close the City Football Academy immediately.
It was reported that the club would then undergo further rounds of testing in order to understand the full scale of the outbreak amongst first-team players and staff.
Following an additional round of testing on Tuesday afternoon, Manchester City have confirmed in a club statement that so far, no new positive Covid-19 cases were revealed.
As a result, the club state that first-team training would resume on Wednesday afternoon, although the club would proceed with caution and adhere to strict guidelines to prevent any further spread.
The club statement read:
“Manchester City FC can confirm that first team training will resume at City Football Academy this afternoon.”
