Statement re Recent Covid tests
22nd October 2020
A Chairde ,
Earlier this week one of our players tested positive for Covid 19 after feeling unwell on Monday .
3 players who were in close contact with that player were immediately tested resulting in 2 further positive and 1 negative results.
On Tuesday, Antrim GAA and Croke Park implemented the rapid testing system protocol for all the remaining personnel who attended Sunday’s Final in Tullamore. Test results have now been returned with 2 more players and 1 back room staff testing positive, we wish these individuals a speedy recovery.
In total 6 players (5 positive and 1 self-isolating ) and 1 member of the backroom team are affected
In relation to first round of Joe Mc Donagh Cup scheduled for Sunday 25th October against Westmeath , while Covid and injuries will result in depleted squad numbers, we in Antrim have confidence in all panel members and we put our best foot forward on Sunday aiming for a victory on the pitch while also upholding the integrity of the competition in a sporting manner.
