Watford FC has two more players in self-isolation after their families tested positive for the coronavirus.
According to Watford manager Nigel Pearson, the two players are feeling okay as the testing situation at the club is set to minimize the risk at the club.
“The testing situation is obviously to minimise risk, so for the players and staff who have been in this week statistically they should be a lot safer but it is still a surprise for those who have tested positive.
“They’re all feeling OK, and likewise for their families as well. That is important for us to make sure that that people-their health is OK.
“In addition to that, we’ve had a couple more people who have to be in isolation because they’ve been in close contact with people who have tested positive, even though their own result came back negative.
“I think that shows the types of complications that we’ve got. Today everybody has been tested again, we were tested on Friday morning, and we await further results over the weekend now.
“It is just something we have got to get used to. We are trying, as everybody will be, to establish what is now a more normal working practice in the circumstances that we have. That is what we have got to work with. But they’re OK,” he said.
The latest news adds to those of defender Adrian Mariappa and two staff members with the club’s captain Troy Deeney vowing not to return to training until the situation is contained.
