Irish athlete tests positive for COVID-19 following European Indoors


A member of the Irish athletics team has tested positive for COVID-19 on their return home from the European Indoor Championships.

Athletics Ireland say the positive sample was detected this morning following PCR testing of the team and close contacts of the affected athlete will self-isolate for ten days.

"A member of the Irish Athletics team returning from the European Indoor Championships in Torun, Poland has provided a positive PCR test on the morning of 11th of March," Athletics Ireland announced in a statement.

"As a result, all team members have been personally contacted and close contacts of the positive case in the travelling party are now self-isolating for a period of 10 days from Monday 8th March in line with government guidance.

"Athletics Ireland is liaising with all relevant authorities to manage this matter and continues to follow all protocols as agreed with the Sport Ireland Expert Advisory Group and the HSE.
