The GAA has issued guidance to clubs on how to deal with suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19.
This is the latest in a number of steps taken by the GAA in recent days as they prepare for the safe return of football and hurling.
In a statement on gaa.ie, GAA Director of Player, Club, and Games Administration Fergal McGill said:
“It is quite simple, if someone in a club gets the symptoms of Covid they should contact their GP.Fergal McGill [via gaa.ie]
If their GP thinks they need to then they will arrange testing. Public health then take over. If it is a negative test the player can return to activity, if it is a positive test and the player has Covid, public health will then take over.
Public health will do an assessment on the player’s movements in the previous days and will make a decision as to who should be considered a close contact or a casual contact in a GAA context.”
Here are the full guidelines issued by the GAA:
